Georges Jouve, Exceptional and rare lamp
Georges Jouve (1910-1964)
Exceptional and rare lamp
Black enamel ceramic, excellent original condition. ‘Alpha’ artist’s cypher in the base. Our lamp distinguishes itself by subtle edges which offer a game of full and empty. The poetry of this lamp lies in all these details, and its light asymmetry. This lamp summarises perfectly the ceramicist’s art.
Height of the ceramic 49 cm (19 1⁄4 in) - Width of the ceramic 20,5 cm (8 in)
Total height 67 cm (26 1⁄4 in) - Total width 45 cm (17 3⁄4 in)
