TrueGether A good Art Deco glass light Sculpture for Walsh Walsh 'Vesta' Table Lamp (C. 1929) An extremely rare Art Deco glass light Sculpture for Walsh Walsh 'Vesta' Table Lamp (C. 1929) by Walter Gilbert. Designed by Walter Gilbert. Depicts a centaur catching a mermaid in a net. Illustrated in Charles Hajdamach's '20th British Glass' This piece has been Exhibited on the Saatchi Gallery Website for about 12 months and can be viewed: A couple of small chips on base easily polished out - please see images or ask questions - please see last three images, all of the same place showing different views and please see the 5 on the back 8 inches (20.5cm) width X 7 inches (18cm) height approxVery stylized Art Deco figure, quality made and heavy (2.3 kilos weight approx unpackaged) Most of his works are unsigned (as this is) however there is what looks like an S or 5 on the Centaurs back. Viewing is welcome - London NW6, By appointment, Walter Gilbert designed many important pieces including the Gates at Buckingham Palace etc... Please read about his portfolio of important sculptures in both Glass and Metalworks see: Walter Gilbert via google. These extremely rare Sculptures rarely come onto the market; the only other one that I can find that has been on the market in recent years sold at the Glass Exhibition 2 years ago (price unknown and it was a complete lamp). The Glass Museum is supposed to be rewriting the list of actual pieces designed by Gilbert based on an archived list that they have discovered; they have confirmed that this design was certainly one of his. When this information finally gets released prices quite rightly will sharply increase. This has to be a rare opportunity to purchase a work from this important artist, a must for any lover of Art Deco. Walter Gilbert was related to the famous Albert Gilbert RA who similarly has created many famous landmark pieces including the Statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus, London If you require any further info please let me know shipping price includes Insurance - pick up welcome Photo gallery click to enlarge Photo gallery click to enlarge
