"ANTONY" TABLE LAMP
enameled metal, brass
16⅛ in. (46.2 cm) maximum height
11⅛ in. (28.4 cm) diameter of shade
Overall in very good condition. This superb complex model by Mouille appears to retain its original paint, which presents with expected signs of age. The painted surfaces on the base and stem present with varying degrees of light corrosion throughout with hues ranging from dark grey to russet brown. The rotating shade is easily adjustable and presents with light scratches throughout as well as areas of minor discoloration consistent with gentle handling. The shade also displays very minute spotty pink paint marks which are not visible unless closely inspected. The brass socket with oxidation throughout consistent with age as well. Sotheby's does not guarantee electrical components and suggests having all wiring inspected by a licensed electrician.
