These “Oriental” boudoir lamps from the 1940s were meant to go on either side of your dressing table, giving light to each side of your face while you applied your make-up, sitting, of course, on a gorgeous vanity stool! Although most women today take two minutes to “do their face” in front of the bathroom mirror, these lamps can still add a touch of glamour to your bedroom!
The pair – a lady and her gentleman friend playing the lute – are Plaster of Paris, very nicely detailed and painted in a trendy grey and red combination. The thing that makes them, in my opinion, is the pair of custom shades. I had ordered these years ago for another pair of lamps, but when they arrived from the fabricator, they just didn’t do a thing for the lamps I wanted to use. So I put the shades away. Two moves and 10 years later, I discovered them and brought them to the store.
The lamps, with their shades, are priced at $195 the pair. You won’t be finding them anywhere else, so if you need a shot of glamour in a bedroom, on a bookcase or bureau, come on in to Mrs. Nicholson Home and snap them up!
