# 3081. A Single Carcel Lamp. Paris Porcelain with fire-gilt bronze metalwork. Fitted for electricity (mechanical innerworkings removed and burner/shade holder removed). Style: Neo-Grec. Fitted as a lamp before 1870. We attribute the porcelain vase to the firm of Denuelle, circa 1834. Copied in the Etruscan style. In 1834 Denuelle exhibited some of these Etruscan vases. Vases showing the same influence were reproduced by Stephane Flachat's work on French industry, along with the porcelain of Jacob Petit and Clauss. A similar styled vase was given by Mme Denuelle to the Musee Adrien Doubouche. Condition: the lower porcelain section has an apparent crack from the upper edge to the intermediate gold band. Minor surface wear consistent with use and age. This is a rare lamp depicting Greek figures, four in all. The predominant ground colors are turquoise, terra-cotta with black and gold tracery. There are three separate porcelain section joined with fire gilt bronze elements. Unmarked. The main image depicts a soldier / warrior atop a winged horse / Pegasus / killing a mythological monster. This high quality lamp would have been used in a room of furnishings consistent with cabinet makers such as Pottier and Stymus, Leon Marcotte, Herter Brothers and Alexander Roux. Size: 20" tall to the bottom of the modern electrical socket and the base has a 6" footprint. Price: $3,500.00.
