Please Identify Bronze lamp - girl with tambourine : LUSENET : Art Deco Society of Washington : One Thread

I have what appears to be bronze electric lamp about 6 inches at widest point and 31 inches tall. It is a woman holding up a tambourine in her right hand. Her left hand is fully extended up holding a round frosted globe that contains an oval shaped yellow light bulb. The base is made of wood. The metal plate on the base says LA DANSE. I was told it dates around 1900.

Hi, I have a similar lamp. Bronze with the girl with a tambourine, with a tree behind her. Left hand also extended. Name plate with The Danse on the base. It used to have beads hagning from the 5 bulbs,one at the end of each branch......but my grandfather cut them off. I remember this lamp from when I was little in their house. I have old pictures from before I was born that show the lamp also. I can't find any information on it, but then, I just started looking. I can probably date it to at least the 1940's or earlier. My grandparents came from Italy in early 1900's but I do not know if they brought the lamp with them or not. I would appreciate it if you pass along any information that you find out about the lamp. Good Luck!!! Ann
