Edouard Schenck floor lamp iron with dragons

ROOMSCAPE
Edouard Schenck lamp (attributed) hand forged iron frame with dragons, 1930`s ca, French.

The iron frame on this antique lamp has been gently cleaned & rubbed with a protector. It has been newly rewired and PAT tested by an electrician. It has a new chrome lamp holder, new black silk cable and new black plug. To maintain the antique look it has a vintage lamp holder cover and vintage pedal switch, both of which are chrome. This lamp can work in other countries with a light bulb suitable to local electricity. It is also possible to use this lamp with a dimmer.

This floor lamp has many features of early 20th Century French designer Edouard Schenck (1874-1959). For example the quality twisted & curled iron work finished with dragon heads are similar to signed Schenck pieces. This lamp is not signed however.

At nearly 2 meters tall this lamp would make an impressive illumination for a large room. It would suite a range of interiors such as Aesthetic Movement, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Country, Industrial, Hollywood Regency or Contemporary.

Structurally this lamp has a hand forged iron frame with tripod base and good weight. The tripod with scrolling decorative work leads to the column. Initially the column is intertwined iron rods and then graduates down to a single rod. This junction is marked with an iron octagon which also holds the electrical cable. As the rod rises it is decorated with a trio of dragon heads. These have twisted necks and are grouped together with an iron band. The dragons support a decorative iron plate with scalloped edges. Beyond this the iron column continues to the lamp holder.

Takes one standard small screw light bulb (E14) up to 100 Watts. Presently fitted and photographed with a standard Candle clear light bulb of 40 Watts, which is included in the price. Alternatively it is possible to use any other E14 light bulb shapes.

Fitted with a vintage lampshade (probably from the 1980`s ca) which has lilac silk fabric on the outside and is lined with silver metallic paper.

This antique lamp is in very good condition. The frame is sound with no damages. The shade is in good condition with minor superficial marks, mostly on the inside, in line with age & wear.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. For safe transport the lampshade would be removed and packed separately with bubble wrap and an outer layer of card. The base would be packed similarly. Both parts could be boxed, ideal for shipping.

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.
