pair table lamps bronze with glass shade Kralik, ca. 1900
Provenance Important private collection, Austria
Vienna was one of the most important junctions of the European art scene during the Wiener Jugendstil. This circumstance granted the artists of this time a richly range of goods of highly specialized firms which offered a wide range of techniques that could be used for the artistic composition of the blueprint. A very special fusing of different firms can be seen at this lamp: the huge shade of this lamp was produced by Kralik, the bowl in the foot was executed by Helosinware Austria and the bronze frame was most likely produced by a Viennese enterprise. The famous sculptor Edgar Brandt executed several magnificent bronzes with snake motifs during that time, maybe his touch can be seen in this design.
