Very striking pair of antique tall hand painted ceramic lamps in the shape of ewers featuring a design of mythical winged beasts. They were likely of Continental origin originally.
The bulbous design of the central body features two winged beasts meeting, while the spout features the head of a beast, if one looks closely. In addition there are wonderful spiral designs to neck and base, and a leafy band at the base of the neck. The long curving handle also features a spiral design.
The colours are a muted and mottled selection to work with any decor, and the whole is covered with a lustre glaze. The pair stands on pierced brass bases made in an octagonal lobed design, to echo the shape of the ceramic base. They are covered with baize underneath to protect the table.
A lovely pair of shades in a lined silk fabric are included.
The lamps have been completely rewired to modern UK standards, and come with cords approximately 8.5 feet long to be able to reach most service points conveniently.
Size-34 inches tall overall with shade. Width 8.5 inches at widest point (handle to spout), with an 8 inch diameter base.
Shade 18 inches diameter by 12 inches deep.
Weight-4 kilos each lamp.(will require specialist packing and shipping)
A really lovely and unusual pair of beautifully hand painted lamps in very good condition, which create a lovely warm glow in the room when lit.
Such nice lamps are difficult to find.
