moreOffered for consideration is a large pair of vintage porcelain lamps featuring statues of a Chinese man and woman. The statues are mounted on giltwood and lacquered turned wood bases and topped with huge celadon lacquered wood finials. The lamps have an amazing color combination in celadon, china red, black and gilt. Each piece is signed by the artist who painted it. One lamp is signed "lewis" and the other signature is illegible. These are most likely the work of a California pottery, although the exact maker remains a mystery to us.
The bases are in overall excellent condition. No chips, no cracks and no repairs in the ceramic. There is some minor crazing in the glaze under close exam. The most significant sign of wear is some chipping to the china red lacquer on the turned wood bases. Any white spots in the photos are reflections of light and not damage.
The socket can utilize a 3-way bulb for 3 different levels of light. The lamps have been newly rewired to current safety standards with new premium brass sockets, solid brass turn keys and all new cording with polarized plugs. The harps and harp saddles have also been replaced with new.
Dimensions: appx 36" (overall height to top of finial) 22.5" high (to top of the socket) 7.5" (wood base) 16.5" high x 6" diameter (ceramic statues alone) less
