Circa: 1950s - 1960s Country of Origin: Italy Manufacturer: Murano
I have two of these gorgeous Mid Century Italian art glass table lamps. I believe they're Murano but no longer have their labels so I can't identify the manufacturer with certainty. The graceful long-necked bulbous urn shaped bodies are clear cased glass with an underlay of silver. Lacy gold flowers with white dot circle centers decorate the outside of the glass along with raised enamel white lacy white flowers inside flower-shaped cartouches outlined in raised gold enamel. The fancy metal bases and acanthus leaf socket connectors are cast brass.
The lamps are 35-1/2" high to the tops of the finials. They come with nubby silk covered tube-pleated shades with metallic lace braid trim. The shades rise above the harps for a total lamp height of 41-1/2 inches. The long white lamp cords have white Bakelite plugs are in good condition with no breaks or stiffness, and the lamps both work fine. The shades are in good shape with a little age staining here and there and some possible age yellowing to the fabric. They are however at least 50 years old and have picked up minor dust and household odors over the years. The shades are not mint but the glass lamps and decoration have no issues at all. The lamps are identical except for the bases - one is more of a bright gold brass color, the other has a darker bronze patina. Price is per lamp. Unfortunately I am not able to ship both lamps in the same box if you wish to purchase the pair due to size and weight.
