Art Deco gilt bronze dog lamp, retriever, French

Art Deco gilt bronze dog lamp of a retriever,1930`s ca, French.

This table lamp has been gently cleaned while respecting the vintage patina. It is newly rewired & earthed with antique gold tone silk cable, fully working, PAT tested by an electrician and ready to use. It has a new metal lamp holder & brass cover, new black cord switch & a new black plug. Light bulb included. It can be used with a dimmer. It is possible to use this light in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity.

The canine theme with realistic depiction is kept elegant and soft with the gilt & onyx. This light would work well as a side lamp on a table, desk, or shelf. It would suit a range of interiors such as Antique, Country, Traditional, Hollywood Regency, Art Deco, or Contemporary.

The composition is simple but effective: a quality cast figurine of a golden retriever lays sideways, holding a tray in the mouth that works as a pen holder. The dog lays on a rectangular polished onyx base and positioned in front of the gilt metal column which leads to the lamp holder.

The quality casting is in gilt bronze and has accurate detail & texture, complemented by the texture & colour of the stone base.

From the back the figurine is as well detailed as the front. The silk cable comes from a discrete hole in the back of the onyx base.

From the back of the figurine rises a tubular vertical rod leading to the lamp holder & the shade support. A decorative brass washer makes the transition to the lamp holder.

The gilt metal shade support starts under the lamp holder and rises with decorative curves to the top. It finishes with a removable decorative finial to screw the shade on.

The vintage shade is the original: brown silk gold lined pagoda with brown silk trim.

The lamp holder has a new brass metal cover that adds a golden tone to the design.

This lamp carries one standard small screw light bulb E14 up to 60 Watts. At present fitted with a Candle Clear light bulb of 40 Watts, as photographed, which is included in the price. This lamp could take other types of E14 light bulbs.

At the bottom of the base there is new black felt to protect the furniture when in place.

This vintage lamp is in very good condition. There is a warm antique patina present on the metal figurine & frame. The onyx base is sound with no cracks and only a couple of tiny nibbles on the edge in line with age. The shade is sound with no cuts and only minor marks & superficial wear in line with age.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care with packing. For safe transport the shade will be wrapped separately in bubble wrap and an outer layer of card. The base will also be wrapped separately in bubble wrap & card. Together these pieces would easily fit into a box with loose fill packing suitable for posting with a courier.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
