Catalogue Note

This striking Van Erp lamp is distinguished by its rare "warty" base, and the unusual treatment of the sculptural curvilinear arms supporting the shade.  Van Erp's "warty" vases and table lamp bases are characterized by their vigorously hand-wrought textured surfaces.  The base to this lamp bears a particularly rich patina heightened in shades of brown and red.
