Ester Elise (Lisa) Morell also known as Koppar-Lisa and Lisa Andersson Morell born July 8, 1884 in Grava Värmland, died 1971, was a Swedish chisel artist.
After finishing girls’ school in Arvika, she went to the United States in 1901 where she studied at various art schools in New York and Kent, after which she continued her studies in Vienna, Germany and Austria and for the chiseler Sven Bengtsson in Lund. She returned to Arvika in 1908 and studied blacksmithing for Petter at Myra.
She made tiles in brass or copper with raised edges, richly adorned with engraving and chiseling in imaginative patterns. Wall lamps in bronze and copper, tableware in silver, chandeliers and many other objects in silver and gold.
The lamp is standing on a wooden base and has a lead weight inside a hollow ornated copperplate foot.
Rewired with a braided power flex.
Lovely timeworn patina.
