Most of his works are unsigned (as this is) however there is what looks like an S or 5 on the Centaurs back.

By appointment, Walter Gilbert designed many important pieces including the Gates at Buckingham Palace etc...
Please read about his portfolio of important sculptures in both Glass and Metalworks see: Walter Gilbert via google. These extremely rare Sculptures rarely come onto the market; the only other one that I can find that has been on the market in recent years sold at the Glass Exhibition 2 years ago (price unknown and it was a complete lamp). The Glass Museum is supposed to be rewriting the list of actual pieces designed by Gilbert based on an archived list that they have discovered; they have confirmed that this design was certainly one of his. When this information finally gets released prices quite rightly will sharply increase. This has to be a rare opportunity to purchase a work from this important artist, a must for any lover of Art Deco.
Walter Gilbert was related to the famous Albert Gilbert RA who similarly has created many famous landmark pieces including the Statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus, London
