1934 Matching Pair Of Vintage Art Deco Cranberry Lamps Working Condition:
Here's a Beautiful Pair of 1934 Art Deco Lamps in Very-Good Condition. I handled an estate for a close friend of mine, and these were his Aunt's. Notice she taped a note to the bottom of the base that reads "Gift from Mom and Dad 1934". As typical for the era, base appears to be made of pot-metal. Pot-metal breaks easily, and as you can see one of the lamps has a crack across the top (see photo #8). Some of the gold paint has worn off of the base, but about 90% still remains. The glass shades are in Very-Good Condition, one of the shades has two very-tiny nicks at the top (see photo's #10 & 11), the other has none. The majority of the gold decoration on the shades is intact, but it has worn off or is thin in some spots. There are also some small chips to the bottom rim of the shades from normal usage. The cords are not as brittle as you would think, appear to be original, and both lamps work great. The Hexagonal base has three long sides and three short ones, the long ones measure 3 1/2" while the short ones measure 1 1/2" Long. The base measures 10" Tall without a bulb, and the glass shades measure just under 5" in diameter at the top, and are 8" High.
