For sale here is a fine pair of vintage 1940s 50s hand-painted ceramic Chinoiserie Chinese lamps with a lovely country scene. The scene includes men and women in the country with trees and flowers with a dragon and a phoenix which implies the harmony of marriage and the fertility of nature. Each lamp stands 37-3/4" tall including the harp and finial by 8" diameter at the middle and 8-1/2" diameter at the base. There are no markings that I can see, and I am not sure if these were made in China or in the USA in the Chinoiserie style. In any case, they are hand painted works of art and quite lovely to behold! The thing about Asian art is that it looks good with just about any decorating scheme from antique to traditional to modern, and these lamps are no exception in that respect. Overall very good vintage condition with some wear and tarnish to the metal parts as expected with an item of this age, and there is an approximately 2" hairline in one of the lamps at top in the rear near the metal section. This does not show at all when the lamps are placed, and they are in no danger from it, and indeed it is barely visible if you are not looking for it. The lamps are sold as shown, and are in working condition, but do not have shades. The lamps will have to be shipped separately, and for this reason the packaging and shipping charge is high. Please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
