This is a floor lamp. It was manufactured by Marius-Ernest Sabino. It is dated ca. 1930 and we acquired it in 1971. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Mrs. John Alden Carpenter, a socially active decorator whose husband was a prominent musician, created a new design for Austro-Hungarian-born Elizabeth Arden’s "Salon de Beauté". She used standing lamps with feathery molded glass shades by the Italian-born French designer Marius-Ernest Sabino, whose lamps also decorated the Ile de France ocean liner.

It is credited Gift of Elizabeth Arden.
