By Conti, P. (Italian, active late 19th/early 20th Century)
This Italian Neoclassical style lamp features remarkably intricate details, and is notable for its portrayal of the movement of the winged putti.
The fine alabaster lamp is crafted as though carved from a single marble pillar, referencing Italian excellence in sculpted works. The lamp is surmounted with a translucent semi-sphere, which contains the light fittings, and is banded with an engraved frieze of lions on a washed, marbled ground. The alabaster affords the light fittings a warm, glowing appearance.
The semi-sphere is set onto a central support which is decorated with vines and leaves, around which two charming winged putti are entwined as they reach upwards. The putti stand on a naturalistic surface set onto the scrolled tri-form base, which features paw feet and is set all around with fruit. The base is further set upon a veined, red marble plinth, which accentuates the pure translucency of the alabaster. The alabaster base is signed above the plinth by the maker 'P. Conti. C / Firenze'.
