Jean Desprès, Important lamp
Jean Despres (1889-1980)
Silver plated metal lamp. Signed at the tip and goldsmith’s mark on the base. This lamp with important proportion perflectly shows the Jean Desprès' strong style. The hammering of the base is very well made and contrasts with the polished bright aspect of the bole. Four mesh chains give rhythm to the whole. This element is very emblematic of Jean Desprès.
