An elegant pair of French Mid-Century Modern polished nickel plated and brass 'Vase Roseaux' table lamps in the style of Maison Charles. The lamps have three tiers of formed leaves within an urn stood on a square pedestal and square plinth bass with moulded brass detail and finished with an acorn finial to the top. Each lamp has three bulb holders.

The lamps come with their 40cm silk lampshades which show some signs of age. The lamps have been re-wired and are in full working order.

Specialising in lighting and bronze works of art Maison Charles was established in Paris by Ernest Charles in 1908. The company was taken over by Emile Albert Charles in 1923. Nine years later Emile's brother Pierre joined the business and the company began trading under the name Charles Freres. In 1959 Emile's two sons joined. Jean was a graduate from the school of boulle and Jacques was a graduate from applied arts. The company was known as Charles & Fils

In 1960 Maison Charles aquired Maison Pierre Fargette – a long established Parisian lighting design house. During this period Christyane Charles (Jean's wife) created many signature pieces in a fresh new style including well known lamps such as the Ananas (pineapple), Epi de Maïs (corncob), Pomme de Pin (pine cone).
