Favourite Item
This large and impressive pair of lamp bases comes from France, where they were made, most probably as vases, in about 1870.
Subsequently converted to lamps and mounted with ormolu, they stand 44 cm to the top of the porcelain and 60 cm to the bulb.
On a bleu foncée ground they are decorated to the front with the most brilliantly rendered "Gallants", or courting couples in period costume. Hand painted in exquisite colours, each large painting shows a couple in "country" costume, in a rural setting, a la Marie Antoinette.
The pictures are framed and surmounted in rich gilding and the body of the bases are crazed in similar rich gilt.
