Pair 1940s porcelain figural Asian man woman small table lamps yellow green, retro Oriental kitsch decor, Chinosierie decor, midcentury lamp

$124.00

Here we have two charming figural table lamps, small in size, featuring an Asian woman doing a fan dance, and a man playing a mandolin. The lamps are fabulous 1940s to 1950s pieces--they are similar to Shawnee Pottery pieces of the same design and even color, yet as they carry no maker's mark, we can only say they are in the Shawnee style. The green is gorgeous in color--almost deep olive--and the yello bright. Paints have not faced, and while there is plenty of crazing in the glaze, the glaze is thick and so the crazing is surface only. Both have non-polarized plugs, still in good shape and working. The lamps do not have harps so will need shades that clipsdirectly onto the bulb. One of the lamps appears to have an embossed D on the back, but I think that might also be a coincidental fold in the clothing.

Each lamp measures just under 11” tall to top of socket. The porcelain portion of the lamp is 8-5/8” tall and the base is 3-1/4" by 3-1/4". Lamps are in working condition, and besides the crazing--see close ups in Photo 5--they are in good vintage condition. No shade included.

A rare thing--an actual PAIR of these lamps!
