Hi, I found this lamp the other day and I thought it was very interesting. Unfortunately its sort out of the normal for what I normally collect, so I honestly have no idea how to even approach identifying it.
Its a blue porcelain lamp with what looks like brass styling to it. The lamp itself almost looks serves style to me, but theres no markings that I can really see. If anyone can help maybe identify it, date it, and possibly value it (theres a small chip near the bass which will probably decrease it), then that would be greatly appreciated.
I uploaded some photos to photobucket If you need anymore then let me know, the link is below:
Hi Josh, I would agree that your urn is Sevres Style. My thought is that it probably is an antique piece with the brass ormolu mounts, that would be approx. 1880 - 1910 ish. It may have started life as part of a garniture set. Having two urn style vases and a clock for the mantle.
One may have broke, and the remaining one was turned into a lamp, by the plug and old style fixtures looks like 1930's or so. I do not think this was ever designed to be a lamp per se.
So that leaves you with a pretty, antique urn turned into a lamp. LOL Hope that helps a bit!
Yes Indeed Josh! and your very welcome! Happy to help if I can. :)
