John J. Gredler Works of Art

James Mont Table Lamp Carved Wood and Bronze, Signed

$2,800.00

Call For Location | 203-325-8070


35" h x 5.75" diameter

Carved and painted column form lamp with bronze mounts by James Mont, signed on the base. A wonderful update of the Italian Neoclassical style, the column with Corinthian capital, vine and acanthus leaf decoration. With a unique design of three bronze circular plates, top, bottom and one just below the capital. No restoration, I have left this is lamp in 'as found' condition, I love the worn painted surface with gesso showing through. The notorious Mr Mont became the preferred decorator of Mafiosi, counting Frank Costello and “Lucky” Luciano as clients and friends. James soon charmed his way into the lives of many show business figures, including Bob Hope (who would later become the best man at his wedding), Irving Berlin and Lana Turner (who would later herself become entangled with the mob).   Circa 1950's.

Loss to two tips pf acanthus leaves on the back of the lamp, several cracks to the surface. It can be restored at customers request.
