Edgar Brandt Snake Lamp
Item #896 SOLD
Very important statue light by Edgar Brandt. This is one of the most famous Brandt lamps and in a size that is quite rare as the serpent image, called La Tentation. Generally, you see this lamp in the Cobra version, maybe it was more popular but the serpent is much more rare. These Brandt pieces come up in auction from time to time but not the serpent. I have here a fantastic original pieces, purchased from the granddaughter of the woman who owned it.
It came to the US via Canada. Look at the detail of the bronze, unmolested in any way, with original Daum glass, cloth chord, switch and plug. This piece was originally purchased sometime between 1920- 1926 and as you can see from the Brandt showroom photo, these were made in two sizes 41″ the floor lamp model and 20 3/4″ inches representing the piece for sale here. I guarantee this is an authentic Brandt lamp with authentic Daum glass. It is an important piece, signed on the bronze E Brandt France. This is an opportunity to own a very important Art Deco Object d’ art, one with great provenance, quality and style. Please take the time to see all of the photos and witness one of E Brandt’s most important works. Reference Master of Art Deco Ironwork by Joan Kahr.
