Pair, 1940's Hand Painted Japanese Porcelain Lamps
A pretty fab pair of 1940's porcelain hand painted lamps with the most interesting green and gold design. The lamps are each marked Made in Occupied Japan, dating them to the late 1940's. In very good condition, the white porcelain bodies have intricate gilt work, painted green oval circles and small, fine flower buds. Interestingly, we find them looking modern and important with the linen drum shades that bring these lamps into the 21st century.
The wiring appears to have been replaced later in time, though not necessarily new. In working condition. 60 watt bulbs recommended. The top cap is a patina'd metal in a floral design. The harps are the European type and are original to the lamps.
The shades are not included in the sale. Very minor wear to lamp bodies. Any metal parts have their original patina. Lamp bodies are 7.5" W at base x 18" H to top porcelain. The harp adds an additional 14" to the lamp body height.
