Raphael Giarrusso Double Gourd French Ceramic Table Lamp Accolay Circa 1967

$ 4,500
  • Description
    Trained in Montreal at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Raphael Giarrusso was awarded a grant and settles in Paris in 1948. In 1953, he left painting and became an interior designer into the Accolay Group founded by André Boutaud with whom he worked for 10 years. However, at the end of his collaboration, he came back to painting and participate in the Salon of Modern Art in Paris in 1961. In 1963, he settled in Vermenton as a ceramist/sculptor. Since then, he regularly showed his works in the Porte de Versailles fair. Raphael Giarrusso is known for his stylized figures from medieval inspiration, always joyful and poetic.

    The feature of his ceramic lighting has both the regular bulb under the shade and interior lighting so the pierced ceramic allows light to come through creating wonderful patterns of light.
    Both the upper standard socket as well as the interior candelabra socket has been replaced for USA use. It is on a three way switch allowing for just the bottom, just the top or both lights to be on.

    Overall size: 14"w x 14"d x 25.75"h.
    Base only: 9"w x 9"d x 16" to the bottom of the socket.
    Shade only: 14"w x 14"d x 11.25"h.
    Rewired for USA, E26 bulb.

Message from Seller:

Pavilion is the collective vision of Deborah Colman and Neil Kraus, both graduates of the master of fine arts program at the Art Institute of Chicago. From a longstanding interest in art and design, frequent buying trips to France and Italy have influenced the direction of the gallery to offer items that are not easily sourced in Chicago and United States. Postwar design has been the focus for 18 yrs and we also look forward to new design that crosses boundaries and dialogues as well to the past
