A genuine large and heavy Lalique cat in their trademark frosted glass. Inscribed with their maker’s mark.
In this version the animal is crouching or lying.
Title: Chat Couche.

These come up very rarely.
An articulated or anglepoise desk or worktable light from the 1940’s. In Australia this work light was reinvented with great success by Planet. A style beloved of design devotees as well of those of us that just like to work under a bright light. We are particularly drawn to the on/off switch which looks like if it has been taken straight off the wall and sculpted in an integrated fashion to the base.
15 cm diameter at the base and 90 cm fully extended upwards.
Finely detailed image of child with foliage below on a silver plated skewer used either for sewing ( or possibly getting those tricky bits out of the crab)
From the 1920’s an architect’s or artist’s table with an inclined top and storage compartment immediately beneath.
And underneath that three further shelves for paper stock or finished works.
