Arthur Von Frankenberg worked in New York as an artist and sculptor in the first decades of the 20th century, and became famous for his Art Deco decorative accessories such as lamps, ashtrays, vases, and candlesticks. He found particular inspiration in the English model, Leone Osborne, who became his muse for a wide variety of items including this lamp.
