Gabriel Argy-Rousseau Pâte-de-Verre "Rosaces" Night Light

SOLD
$14,500

In rosey pastel tones and with a rounded, oblong shape, this "Rosaces" pâte-de-verre night light by Gabriel Argy-Rousseau features a delicate softness of composition in exciting conversation with strong Art Deco design. Four stylized peony blooms burst outward against the dark bands that halo them, decorating the bottom band of the petite lamp. The upper portion, similarly divided by patterned black bands, alternates between stippled purple and milky white hues until it reaches its apex at which point the light, airy colors give way to a dark, blackish crown.
