Antique lamp, Art Deco/Nouveau marble sculpture lamp

Antique lamp, Art Deco/Nouveau marble sculpture lamp
Antique lamp, Art Deco/Nouveau marble sculpture lamp just into our antiques mall here in Fort Myers, FL. It is a fabulously carved antique marble sculpture from the early 1900s. I called her Venus because she reminds me of Botticelli's famous Birth of Venus 1486 painting where Venus is standing demurely on a shell with the wind blowing her hair. The artist did an expert rendition of the 1400s subject which he brought to his early 1900s era. It is pleasing both to Art Deco and Art Nouveau fans. In addition to being a stunning sculpture it's also an elegant antique lamp. The base lights up making this an even more beautiful piece perfect for any setting.

This is one of the many Antique Lamps from our antiques mall in Fort Myers, Florida. We also buy antique lamps and offer free antiques appraisals. If we can help you please contact us.
