Marc Bellaire Ceramic Lamp with Primitive Lascaux Animal Motif and Fiberglass Shade

Out of stock

SKU: bellaire-lamp Category:


This is easily one of the most interesting midcentury modern lamps we’ve come across! Everything about the lamp is unique, from it’s unusual shape to the lip at the top of the bottle neck. The shape mimics a woman’s hips, adorned with Lascaux style (cave painting) primitive animal motifs. The pedestal beneath is actually part of the lamp! The lamp comes complete with a torchiere white glass diffuser and fiberglass lamp shade as pictured.

7.5″W x 5.5” D x 32.75” H (28.5” high no shade)
Shade: 18” diameter x 8” High

Marc Bellaire

Marc Bellaire was born Donald Fleischman in 1925 Toledo, Ohio. He studied at the Toledo Museum of Art, later moving to California to open a studio in Culver City. Bellaire’s 1950s era studio produced high-quality ceramics, often decorated with ultramodern figures and geometric patterns. His most famous line was Mardi Gras, featuring slim dancers in spattered and striped colors. Other popular lines were Jamaica, Balinese, Beachcomber, Friendly Island, Hawaiian, Bird Isle and Kashmir. Marc Bellaire was quite prolific during this period. He’s most known for his ceramic serving pieces, figurines, vases, dishes, ashtrays, decorative plates and lamps. Bellaire relocated to Marin County in the 1970s and later moved to Palm Springs where he opened his final studio and gallery. He died in 1994. Early in his career, Bellaire worked at Sascha Brastoff’s factory and was his protege.
