This bronze floor lamp with a brown patina rest on a narrow circular base. It evokes a slight silhouette with a feminine head decoration with turned up shoulders topped with a silky lampshade none original. Alberto Giacometti created this floor lamp model for Jean-Michel Frank in the beginning of 1930s.
