A Leerdam glass sculpture of a head; the object is part of a lamp.
Designed by C.C. van Asch van Wijck, the Netherlands, 1929.
Height: ca. 30cm.
The object was dirty and on the bottom left corner a chip had
broken off and was bonded back in an unsatisfying manner.
Object was cleaned and old restorations were removed. The
chip was bonded back in place and a colored fill was made to
further fill up the break.
