An Edgar Brandt patinated wrought iron and alabaster L'Orient floor lamp
designed 1924 stamped Edgar Brandt and Made in France height 60 1/4in (153cm); diameter 5 1/2in (14cm)
Literature: Joan Kahr, Edgar Brandt, Art Deco Ironwork, Schiffer Publishing Ltd, Atglen, 2010, page 69 for period photograph of design variant
This is a special order variant of the L'Orient model. In this version of the design the stem is of broader proportions and does not feature a Daum glass shade with accompanying wrought iron basket armature.
Very few examples of Edgar Brandt's designs were signed with the designer's full name, and the majority of these were made for export. It is possible that the lamp was purchased at one of Edgar Brandt's selling exhibitions at either Macy's, or Lord and Taylor in 1928.
Provenance: Purchased circa 1928 by Catherine Ink (1901-1946), Canton, Ohio; thence by descent
