TABLE LAMPS Matched PAIR Mid Century Modern Ceramic
Matched pair of small ceramic mid
century modern table lamps.
We are very happy to be able to offer
this matched pair of Mid Century Modern table lamps.
This is a very nice pair of smaller
scale table lamps. The bodies of these lamps are slip cast ceramic
shells. The bodies are a bulbous bottomed bottle shape. The
clay body is buff, the design is a combination of incised line
work with dry brushed pigmentation, and accented with matte
gold lustre. The colors are a matte, muted reddish brown, and
a red orange. The design is outlined with the matte gold lustre.
There is a stripe of gold lustre separating the top of the lamp
body from the base. The base is accented with a dry brush application
of the gold lustre as well.
This pair of lamps are on the smaller
size. They are 18 1/2 inches, measured from the top of the shade
harp to the base. The actual ceramic bottle measures 9 1/5 inches
tall, by approximately 5 inches in diameter at the widest point.
Each lamp weighs 1.5 pounds each. They are the perfect size
for a smaller room, or apartment. Both lamps have been tested,
and work just fine.
The overall condition of this pair
of lamps is good- There are some flaws though. The harps are
tarnished and a bit rusted, but they will clean up nicely with
a bit of rubbing using a fine steel wool. Because the surface
of the lamps is unglazed and matte it has collected some dirt
over the years, and there are a few small abrasions. But a little
careful clean up with comet and a small brush will get them
looking like new.
These lamps are offered without shades,
giving you the opportunity to find shades locally, that will
tie the lamps to the color scheme and existing decor of your
These are a great pair of Mid Century
Modern lamps, And it's not often you find old lamps like these
in perfectly matched pairs. They are just the right size for
