Denise Gatard, gilded enamelled lamp
Denise Gatard (1908-1991)
Gilded enameled lamp
Earthenware lamp in the shape of a candelabrum. The piece is covered with a shiny gilded enamel which presents beautiful cracks, inherent to the artistic process. The flared circular base bears a stem in the shape of a ball decorated with spinning canals. The latter supports two lights at the end of which stand two bobeches decorated with stylised leaves.
In these bobeches are stuck two white-electrified candle pastiches.
Monogram “DG“ under the base.
