Fulper Pottery, located in Flemington, New Jersey from 1910 to 1929, created some of the most memorable ceramic lamps that were illuminated by electricity. Their figural boudoir lamp depicting a pantalooned and masked Harlequin is prized by Fulper collectors today. It is the translucency of the ceramic, lit from within, along with the colorful and almost kitschy look of the figure, that makes this lamp so precious – who can resist an illuminated and glowing skirt and pantaloons? The Harlequin lady boudoir lamp was originally calledThe Mask Boudoir Lamp No. 331and it was marketed in the 1920s.
William Fulper died in 1928 & sadlyhis pottery burned to the ground in 1929.
