About this piece
A pair of Art Nouveau wall lights in the manner of Alessandro Mazzucotelli
Blackened cast iron with later fabric covered globe shade, the botantically-inspired detailing very much alive with the mannerisms of Art Nouveau, including serpent's tail and scales
Milan, circa 1900
It is claimed that Alessandro Mazzucotelli (1865 – 1938) the Milan based master Blacksmith once said:
“Iron should be treated like a woman: she seems hard and terrible, but with a little fire she turns soft like wax. And when it seems to rebel, do not mistreat and hammer it furiously, no! You have to treat it gently and caress it...”
Alessandro Mazzucotelli was known throughout Europe in the early Twentieth century and exhibited at the Exposition Internationale Des Arts Decoratifs Et Industriels Modernes in Paris, 1925.
