A tall Jean Touret floor lamp for Marolles. The lamp is made of an iron stem with a large wicker hood, standing on a heavy oak base. The hood has an adjustable round wicker element underneath. This piece was part of a large estate of Touret items, bought directly from the sons of the owners. The Atelier Marolles was commissioned to furnish the house, from a dinner table and sideboard to items like this one. The items were made in the 1950s, under the direction of and designed by Jean Touret. The late Jean Touret began a career as a painter and then turned towards woodcarving. All his life he continued his aesthetic research by experimenting unconventional use of a variety of materials: wood, paper, copper, zinc, bronze, plexiglass, ceramics and concrete. We have several other items by Touret available.
