Aladin Luxe sports car lamp, 1930s
Price Code: SOLD
An exceptionally rare Art Deco ceramic boudoir lamp in the form of a stylized sports car at speed, set on a sloping white ceramic plinth. The bright red glazed body and hubcaps with drivers in colourful livery, is highlighted with gold details and bears the number ‘4’ to the sides of the bonnet.
The light emanates from the two open headlamp apertures, and the piece is signed ‘Aladin LUXE’ to the underside. With a twisted silk cable, the lighting has been fully upgraded. French, circa 1930s. Extremely scarce, only four examples of the Aladin are known including two in the Louwman Museum in Holland, and one in a private collection in London.
