Pair of Chinese Export Cobalt Blue Glass Hand-Blown & Hand-Etched Table Lamps
Pair of Antique Hand-Etched Cobalt Blue Glass Lamps With Wood Circa. 1890-1900 China
These absolutely fabulous lamps were made for Chinese Export to the West during the very early 1900's Hand-blown cobalt blue glass with hand-etched cherry blossom branches Hand-carved wood wood caps and bottom bases. The lamps are wired with a circular wire switch and a pull chain on each of the two bulbs per lamp
There are two minor condition issues. One is a repair made many years ago to one wood bottom base (see photo) The repair work is hardly noticeable today The second issue is that one finial was repaired years ago and the iron repair work left the screw-on off center. Otherwise, the pair are in excellent to pristine condition
The lamps measure 29 inches in height to top of finials 25 inches high to top of shades. The weight of each lamp is 7.1 pounds The cobalt blue glass is 5 inches in diameter Each shade is 9 inches in height and 12 inches wide at bottom The hand carved round wood base measures 5 1/2 inches in diameter
They make wonderful end-table lamps for the bedroom Also work beautifully on a commode in the living room or entranceway They are super rare, and have been in the possession of one family here in New York since the early 1930's
We have taken photos in natural light as well as enhanced light to help show the hand etching on the glass The lamps are very difficult to photograph Must be seen in person!
In excellent condition
