notes

A very comparable lamp which once formed part of this important private collection was sold for over £200,000 by Sotheby's London, 28 November 2006, lot 269.  Bowenite would appear to have been the hardstone of choice for Julius Rappoport when creating these extremely decorative table-lamps. Two very similar lamps are held in the Pavlovsk Palace collection; they were also made by Fabergé's chief silversmith and the main bodies are formed from bowenite. Not only is the subtle green colouring of the stone very elegant, but it clearly compliments the Neo-Classical mounts decorating each of these examples.

Fabergé promoted the fusion of Classical design and modern technology in works produced by his firm. Electric lamps were a great novelty still at the turn of the twentieth century; at the same time Neo-Classicism enjoyed a revival and motifs were frequently worked into furniture and works of art. The offered lamp and the vases at Pavlovsk share many of the same design attributes, for example: amphora shaped stems, tied laurel bands and fir-cone finials. These were clearly popular with an Empress as the Pavlovsk lamps were taken from the private rooms of Alexandra Fedorovna at Alexander Palace.
