Lamp, ca. 1930

This is a Lamp. It is dated ca. 1930 and we acquired it in 1978. Its medium is steel, copper, bronze, nickle, glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Although Jules Bouy ran Ferrobrandt, the New York branch of Edgar Brandt’s metalwork firm, he also designed in his own right for a sophisticated clientele. This lamp mixes sharp angles with graceful curves in steps of different shades of metal and can be used as a wall light.

This object was donated by Mrs. Paul L. Dahlstrom. It is credited Gift of Mrs. Paul Dahlstrom.
