This pair of 1950s ceramic table lamps are a milk chocolate, almost pinkish light brown color with weeping gold trim. The bodies are slender bottle shapes. At the center front of each lamp is a biomorphic teardrop with sgraffito effect horizontal lines and a gold flower high relief. Elongated spear shapes decorated with gold squiggle lines protrude off-center at either side of the neck.
The lamps are 21 inches high with the shades by 4-1/2" diameter at the widest part (13-1/4 inches high to the tops of the sockets). The clip-on gold glittered paper shades are 10" high by 5" diameter at the tops, flaring to 9 inches diameter at the bottoms. The golden beige color has darkened over the years, and there are significant tears to the paper trim at the tops. Other than the trim, the shades and frames are intact. One of the lamp sockets has been replaced though they're both the same brand, size, and style.
The lamps work fine as shown in the last photo. The 6 foot brown cords have no brittleness, nicks, or cuts. The plugs are the old fashioned non-polarized type. The high gloss ceramic bases have no chips, fleabites, or damage. One lamp is completely missing the original wool felt bottom, the other has most of the felt removed.
