Vintage French Sevres Style Like Porcelain Floral Table Lamp Circa 1938. I found this lamp on the last day of an estate sale. The previous owner traveled the world and purchased the majority of his items in France and Italy where he did business.

I was fortunate to meet a distant relative at the sale, and she told me how much fun it was for the children to be at this home when the containers were delivered, she said it always seemed like Christmas. His immediate family all had a love of beauty.

Upon inspection this lamp, is not a genuine Sevres porcelain, but upon inspection it has alot of the same qualities. The shape, gold gilt and center motif of transfer flowers. Sevres china has it's roots in a small town of Vincennes back in 1740, in France. In 1756 the Company moved to the Limoges district in France, where there were hundreds of skilled tradesmen and production sites.

In the 19th century,Alexandre Brogniart oversaw operations at Sevres. the neo-classic style dominated, with rich jewel glazes and plenty of gold guilt that would definitely made a happy home in Louis XV's palace.

Fast forward to 1938, this lamp was removed from the straw in the packing crate and went directly to one of the guest bedroom's.

It measures 14 3/4" tall, 5" diameter on the bottom and 7" between the handles of the urn. There are no nicks, cracks or imperfections. I will be happy to include a harp, with the harp the lamp measures 25" tall. The center floral transfer coordinates with the brushed ruby glaze and there is just enough gold gilt to make this a statement piece. The transfer is on the front of the lamp only. The electric cord measures 74" in length.

This lamp could be a home in any Paris Apartment decor, Shabby Chic, Hollywood Regency or if you are anything like me, my favorite Style is mix it up.

We may not have a world traveler in our Family unit, but this gentleman's purpose to show us all beauty in the world lives on! Now that is a legacy.

Lady Mary of Downton Abbey fame would love this as a wedding gift, only problem her wedding date is about 20 years earlier, LOL

I guess Dr. Who is needed to complete this story.
