Offered for consideration is a pair of porcelain lamps attributed to the Cordey Porcelain Co. The lamps feature an urn form with figural wings and highly detailed applied flowers.

The bases are in overall good to excellent vintage condition. There are no cracks, no chips and no repairs in the main porcelain body of the lamps. There is one small chip and two places where a little piece of the vine broke off on the applied floral part of the lamps. 2 of these are pointed out in the last two detail photos. Also, the painted gilt on the rims has worn off some over time.

The brass bases have typical "age spots" from oxidation, but also have a lovely greenish patina throughout.

The original "fixed" harps have been replaced with new removeable harps. This makes the lamps easier and less expensive to ship and also makes it easier to change out shades.

Overall the lamps present very clean without the defects being glaringly obvious.

The pieces are unmarked, their Cordey paper labels have been lost to time.

There are "white spots" in some of the photos, these are reflections of light and not damage.

The lamps have been rewired to current safety standards with new sockets, new cording and a polarized plug set (one prong wider than the other).

The socket can utilize a 3 way bulb for 3 levels of light.


25" overall height to top of the finial

6.5" at widest / 11" high (porcelain alone)

18.5" to top of the socket

6" diameter at base

The lamps are being sold without shades. The harps and finials are included.
