Southern Belle Lamp Bases
Two sweet and petite boudoir lady figural lamps probably from the 50s. They look very much like the wonderful Japanese figurines by Inarco, Napco or Josef, but these ladies don’t have any maker’s marks on them. Their lovely, beautifully painted faces are expressive underneath their white bonnets trimmed in gold to match their ruffled full dresses. The one lamp is in excellent condition with no paint loss, chips or breaks that I can find. The other one has had repairs to the waist, elbow and back of the post as I show in the pictures. There may also be a couple of small spots of gold paint loss (or may be a manufacturing flaw) and one tiny fleabite on the hem of her skirt, but her face is in perfect condition and the overall look of the lamp is very good. The lamps are priced accordingly for the flaws of the one, but as a pair they are strikingly beautiful. Both are in perfect working condition. The lamps measure approximately 12” high to the top of the socket, about 5-1/2” wide at the base and 4-3/4” deep. These would be perfect on a Shabby Chic dressing table or in a little girl’s room!
Teddy Bear Nursery Lamp
Isn’t this adorable? A teddy bear lamp holds a 5-tiered pink lampshade adorned with teddy bear, lamb and horsie pink graphics on a faint gingham background. The shade is made of graduating thin metal rings held by darker pink twill tape. In all my travels, I’ve never seen a shade like this! It’s unique and wonderful. The rings graduate from the largest at the bottom approximately 11” in diameter to the top ring at approximately 4-1/2” diameter and collapses to 2” tall when not hanging on the lamp harp. The bear lamp base with it’s blue, pink, white and gray colorings measures about 8” tall by 3” wide by “4-1/2” deep. There are no maker marks anywhere on the piece. The overall lamp height from base to finial top is approximately 18” tall. There are no cracks, chips or crazing on the porcelain lamp base and the shade is in beautiful condition with no dents or mars. A sweet, sweet piece for any baby or toddler room! (Sorry, the other items pictured with the lamp are not included.)

Beautiful Art Nouveau Wall Sconce
Lovely Art Nouveau two-light gilt wall sconce. This gorgeous piece looks to be from the 20’s or 30’s and is in remarkable condition! The detail on this sconce is exquisite. It appears the gilt work is all original paint, but I’m not certain the center medallion is the original color. However, the turquoise is beautiful and a wonderful accent for the sconce. The candle covers look original and there is a beautiful piece in the center to attach to the wall crossbar (not included). The cloth covered wiring looks original as well and I would recommend having it replaced by a licensed professional before installation. The sconce measures approximately 11-1/2” high by 10” wide by 5-1/2” deep. The center medallion is approximately 5” wide by 7” high including the top fleur de lis. A fabulous piece, it would look wonderful with your vintage, Hollywood Glam or Paris Apartment décor.
