Vintage MAJOLICA French Farmhouse Harvest Theme Tall Table Lamp

Vintage Majolica French farmhouse tall table lamp, garden harvest of vegetables.

We are very pleased to offer for your consideration this wonderful Majolica Table lamp.

Majolica was first introduced by Minton & Company (also, Minton Ltd.) at London’s Crystals Palace Exhibition of 1851. This was, of course, a time when all aspects of Victoriana were popular, including massive volumes of tableware for every imaginable mealtime desire. Modeled in relief, early Minton designs focused on Renaissance motifs, such as lions, rams, and mythological figures. First called “Palissy ware,” majolica was named for a French Renaissance potter, Bernard Palissy, whose success had been with a rustic style of pottery colored in a naturalistic manner that included such forms as snakes, lizards and shellfish. The name that stuck, however, was majolica. This term had its roots in the name of the Spanish island, Majorca (or “Maiorca”), which was a port for similar glazed wares being sent from Spain to Italy in the 14th and 15th centuries. The Victorian majolica “revival” prompted a frenzy. The pottery designs grew to dovetail with the Victorian interest in the natural sciences; pieces featured butterflies, insects, flowers, leaves, fruit, shells, animals and fish.

This design of this wonderful lamp follows the late Victorian practice of using fruits and vegetables as the inspiration for the pieces created. This lamp is piled high with the fruits of a garden harvest. The bounty includes, Onions, large Garlic cloves, leeks, Potatoes, Eggplant, Artichokes, and Tomatoes, accented with small flower blossoms and leafs. All these beautiful renditions of vegetables are piled high into a plan white bowl, set onto an ornate painted metal base.

The lamp is a tall one, it measures 33 inches from the finial to the bottom base. The widest diameter of the lamp is approximately 9 inches. The base measures 6 5/8 inches in diameter. The lamp weighs 13 pounds. The lamp is made from a low fire white clay body.

Condition- This lamp is in very good condition. There are no chips, or cracks in the ceramic section of the lamp. The metal base could use some cleaning. The lamp has been tested and we suggest installing a new plug. This lamp is offered without a shade. This give you the opportunity to pick a shade that will work well with both the lamp and your existing color scheme.

This lamp would look fantastic in a large French country style kitchen. It is a wonderful reminder of the bounty and sustenance that mother nature provides.
