About this item

Maison Charles lamp of Othello, attributed to Maison Charles, 1970`s ca, French.

Thoroughly cleaned respecting the antique patina. Newly rewired & earthed with gold toned silk cable, new silver toned lamp holder, new plug and new black switch on the cable. Light bulb included. This lamp is ready to use.

At the focal point of this vintage table lamp is a large quality cast silver plated metal sculptural mask of Othello standing at 32 cm height. Together with the original vintage pagoda lamp shade and wooden plinth base, this lamp creates a composition of great effect typical of the lamps produced by Maison Charles of Paris.

This smart lamp is well suited for a console table, side table, desk or a sideboard. The classic theme and choice of materials would suit a range of interiors such as Minimal, Antique, Art Deco or Hollywood Regency.

The Othello mask sits on a square stepped plinth base which has a decorative silver toned frieze. The mask is securely fitted to the base at the back by a decorative silver-toned nut. A silver toned metal arch surrounds the sculpture and leads to a lamp holder cup of the same tone. Inside this there is a new lamp holder that is earthed.

The original pagoda lamp shade has a patent leather effect of black gloss with a trim of black fabric & gold detailing. Inside it has a gold toned lining which casts a warm tone. The shade screws to the lamp holder by a metal ring.

This table lamp takes 1 standard large screw light bulb (E27) up to 60 Watts.

The silver plated sculpture is in very good condition with an antique patina in line with age. The wooden rectangular base is in very good condition. The vintage lamp shade is in good condition for its age: the outside of the shade has minor marks and only one tiny cut that has been restored. The trim of the shade has some wear. There is some "bubbling" on the inside gold metallic lining as photographed although this is hardly noticeable when the shade is on.

Packing is offered free of charge. The lamp shade would be removed. The shade and base would be bubble wrapped separately and boxed together perfect for a courier service.
