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 large1960s pair of porcelain genie bottle lamps with a white glaze and polka dots with a purple-mauve glaze.
The bases are in EXCELLENT condition. There are no chips no cracks and no repairs. The only details of note are a few nicks in the brown enamel finish on the bases and some typical discoloration from age to the brass fittings. Overall this is an exceptionally clean pair of lamps.
The mauve glaze on the dots is slightly darker on one of the lamps.
The lamps have been newly rewired to current saftey standards with new sockets, new cording and new polarized plug sets. The sockets can utilize 3 way bulbs for 3 levels of light.
