Edgar Brandt

circa 1921

patinated wrought iron, beveled mirrored glass, silk tassels

impressed EBRANDT

32⅜ x 40⅝ x 1⅜ in. (82.2 x 103.2 x 3.5 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The wrought iron presents with some very minor surface irregularities inherent to the medium and its casting. The iron presents with scattered surface scratches, abrasions and rubbing to the patina consistent with gentle use, as well as traces of oxidation, rust and light pitting throughout consistent with age. The upper decorative element presents with light surface soiling concentrated to the recessed contours. The mirrored glass is in well-preserved condition with a fine beveled edge and some very faint scattered surface scratches and light surface soiling consistent with age. The lot is offered together with two silk tassels in very good condition with some minor fraying and unraveling to the coiled threads, stable. A handsome example of Edgar Brandt’s celebrated Art Deco ironwork.
