Denise Gatard, gilded enamelled lamp

Denise Gatard (1908-1991)

Gilded enameled lamp
Circa 1955

Earthenware lamp in the shape of a candelabrum. The piece is covered with a shiny gilded enamel which presents beautiful cracks, inherent to the artistic process. The flared circular base bears a stem in the shape of a ball decorated with spinning canals. The latter supports two lights at the end of which stand two bobeches decorated with stylised leaves.
In these bobeches are stuck two white-electrified candle pastiches.
Monogram “DG“ under the base.

Total height 58 cm (22 7⁄8 in) - Total width 46 cm (18 1/8 in)

- Private collection, France.
