1921 Small Antique Gothic Lamps
We find maybe three Gothic lamps in a year. This is our second, a pair of romantic Gothic boudoir spelter lamps with flower swags and leaves and ribbons and dots painted red and green and off-white/yellow. The 6-sided base pair still have their original silk shade inserts, their fabric-covered cords and original plugs and paddle switches. Low wattage cool-burning bulbs are recommended. The delicate silk fabric has 2 layers, faded red inside and blue outside, giving off an amazing Gothic authenticity you can imagine in films made of that era (Gone With The Wind?). Shadows are cast in a regulated way both above and below the lamps.
The petite pair will sit beautifully in the bookcase, amongst the leaves of gold…
Measures 12.25″ tall. Sold as a pair.
Signed ‘Made in USA’ and ‘Pat. 11-22-21’.
