Of baluster form, painted with a band of stylised leaves on a turquoise ground, painted marks, converted at some stage to table lamps, bases drilled, 1923. In spite of the drilled holes we think that this lot should appeal to a Gouda collector. When pricing the pair we have taken into account those holes. The material shades are edged with beads.
Gouda has been a centre of pottery production since the 18th century and the Plateelbakkerij Zuid-Holland factory was founded 1898, producing distinctive Art Nouveau and Art Deco designs.
The stylised number 8 in the mark shows that they were made in 1923 and the hand painted decoration is influenced by Islamic pieces made in Isnik in the 16th and 17th century.
Size : 43 cm. ( 16 59/64" ) tall and 24 cm. ( 9 29/64" ) widest measurement.
Weight : the pair weighs 3,004g.
Condition : very good overall.
Should a purchaser wish to use them as lamps going forward then one should ensure that , electricity wise, they conform to all local health and safety standards. They can be dispatched without the lamp parts should one so wish!
