As promised on August 30, that I would list the other two rose enameled Lampe Berger lamps in about two weeks, here is finally the second one. From France again, comes this beauty of a Lampe Berger with an artful Anémones bottle, this time done by Camille Tharaud 1963-1971. On page 134 of the book Lampes Berger: A Century of History by Gérald Vilcocq you can read more about the history of Charles Ahrenfeldt and Camille Tharaud; as both have made this lamp. It is a stunning bottle and in perfect condition as well; complete with ajoured brass crown, snuff cap and burner wick. That is remarkable for such a lamp, being half a century old! This Camille Tharaud Limoges lamp is slightly taller than those with the same roses from Charles Ahrenfeldt. Available at my Zen Cart powered on line botuique: Mariette's Back to Basics. Also see on my website the information about Lampe Berger with History video and Air Diagnosis quiz; click here and go to the blue hyperlinks with title. Tomorrow I will show you a video from Lampe Berger: LIVE IN AIR YOU LOVE.
Beautiful raised enamel work!
Wonder why this is called Anémones on page 134 of the book? To me they are ROSES, complete with thorns and all... Am I wrong?
Monsieur Gérald Vilcocq might be a great writer and knowledgeable about Lampe Berger but he is no botanist in my eyes; not convincing enough at least!
A detail of the Anémones, uhm ROSES...
Part of the back side, beautiful detail too.
C Tharaud (for Camille Tharaud) with Limoges France and Berger made in France Limoges. All in gold with the initials CA to the side.
On the side of the brass neck is engraved: Made in France. And on the opposite side: Lampe Berger.
This is the book I got from publisher NOÈME
I could not scan that part, as this hard cover is too large, but it is written under the Lampe Berger at the bottom.
