Bronze Dragonfly Mantle Lamps


Item Code: TAB20151107001
Sold
Year : 1920-1930
By the Cincinnati Artistic Brassworks.
One of the few series of production fixtures that rival the handmade lighting of their day.
Delicate and crisp bronze casting shows that these were tended to by master craftsman and their wonderful art deco influenced design shows the handiwork of experienced designers.
The center cluster of flora is adorned with two dragonflies.
Dragonflies symbolize self awareness, because they are one of the few insects that can move in all six directions. The Samurai used the dragonfly as a symbol of power, agility, and victory, all needed traits during the great depression.
Understandably rare.
