    I am trying to find any information on the above Upside down Lady Lamp. Not sure if it is Art Deco or Art Nouveau. I am leaning towards Art Deco. The three lady’s are made from metal (Bronze I think) the shade, base and bowl are made of alabaster.
    The hight of the lamp is 26 cm high, and a massive 30.5 cm wide (bowl).

    It is an beautiful piece and the photos do not do it justice.

    Please help any information would be appreciated. Thank you for looking

      Hi Newfld thank you, yes she is Fab!, I have her history of past oner’s ( original owner from new, then another for short time, then me) the owners stories are great. Now I would like more info on who made her? Where. When etc. To complete her story.

      Art Deco. Similar to the ones that H.B. Hirsch made about 1940 or so when they started to use alabaster on many of their lamps. Appears to be american figures like frankl made. This one needs a dimmer as that light must be burner hot !~
    4. Kiwimade Kiwimade, 9 months ago
      Thank you PhilDMorris. I did not know these makers. Good idea about the dimmer, I will look into it, cheers. (The lamp is hardly turned on, and not for any length of time).
    5. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 9 months ago
      Not positive but the design for the female figures are like the ones Frankl did back in the early 30's. They have been copied since. I only see one in search of " Frankl Figural lamps". Not sure if yours is NOS, new old stock.

      Cool lamp. The figures are likely poly-chromed Spelter. Just use a very low wattage bulb in it.( 7 to 15 watt) Most of these alabaster type lamps really only used the light to highlight designs in the alabaster, show the figures, and provide a mood light as such. Very cool piece. We have collected Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Egyptian Revival and Machine figural lamps for many years. I have never seen this one before.

      Hi PhilD Morris cheers for the info, I have tried to follow the "Frankl Figural lamps"
      lead but cannot find her. I have only seen a single one close to her, not same (upside down on a pillow/Chair). She is original not NOS as the original owner of her was a female who wore long pants in a time were they were not worn. (She has a fab story, a pioneer of her time).

      Hi welzebub. Thank you for your comments. I like her too. she is in good condition for her age. I will follow your advice and get a smaller bulb, and someone who has a small hand to change the lightbulb inside, Lol.

      I have seen a number of them but the ones I seen must have been sold and removed which is the trouble with the internet, fly by night images. I have only had one of the frankl lady items which had a different figure, and was a card holder with a small tray as per the pic on top of fireplace:
