Large Curtis Jere Lucite & Brass Table Lamp

Unavailable
This fabulous lamp dates from circa 1970 and is crafted from clear lucite, polished stainless steel and brass, and has been attributed to Curtis Jere. It features its original wiring and dial (on cord) to adjust the brightness of its two bulbs. Condition is excellent, with no pitting nor dents, and only some very light scratches to the base. No signature or label has been found. This lamp will make a significant impression in any large space and measures 27.5" across, 30" high and 10" deep. Base has its original black rubber feet. We have seen two other leading New York dealers attribute this lamp to Pierre Cardin. However, none of the three lamps in question are signed and we have never seen a Cardin lighting fixture which lacks the familier Cardin trademark, which is often incised into the primary material, whether it be lucite, brass or wood. Our attribution to Curtis Jere is based on a table lamp of similar design which was recently sold at auction and which carried the familiar copyright mark and signature, C. Jere, applied to the metal in ink or enamel paint. We believe the mark on our lamp has likely been worn away from repeated cleaning and/or polishing. We will be happy to forward images of the signed fixture for comparison with our lamp.this item resides in our client's gallery on the Upper West Side in New York City and may be seen by appointment.
Additional images gladly forwarded upon request.
