The "only 1 available" next to the price is in reference to 1 pair available. This listing includes 2 lamps.


Offered for consideration is a MONUMENTAL Pair of 1960s ceramic table lamps. The lamps feature a classic oversize vase form with a drip glaze in tones of cobalt and green over matte gray-brown. The lamps been totally refurbished with new brass fittings and all new electric components. Both pieces have been remounted on solid walnut bases.

The bases are in overall excellent vintage condition. There are no hairline cracks or major damage in the vessels. The only flaws of note are some minor chips in the glaze. This occured in a few places along the bottom ridge of the thick blue green glaze. There is also one minor chip in the matte gray glaze on one lamp where the vessel meets the walnut base. (See the last detail photos, additional photos available on request)

There are reflections of light in some of the photos. This is not damage of any kind.

Overall the lamps present very clean.

The lamps have been newly rewired to current saftey standards with new premium brass sockets, new cording and new polarized plug sets. The socket can utilize 3 way bulbs for 3 levels of light.
