This Vintage lamp has a gorgeous blue drip glaze that went perfectly with the customers other table lamp. The height of this lamp was to tall for their bedside table so they reworked it. By removing the top half of the neck and the base they were able to make it flow with their other Vintage lamp. They plan to use the other pieces for their next project! This project shows upcycling vintage for personalization of the old into a new modern yet retro piece.

SOLD $99.99 ~02/8/2013~

Very tall Mid Century drip glaze lamp with wood neck. A fabulous example of Mid Century artwork meets function. Gorgeous blues and greens adorn this very tall lamp. Standing at 3 feet tall without shade, it is a statement maker. Perfect for your mid century, retro, vintage living room or office. Bring Mad Men to you. Recently rewired it works perfectly. There is some wear on the wood base and neck and one crack, nothing terrible, shown in pictures. No felt on the bottom due to rewiring. I really hate to let this one go but I am running out of room. My loss is your fabulous gain!

Dimensions: 3’x6″ tall,not including harp and 9″ at its widest.
This listing does not include the shade pictured.

This Antique Red Wing Cookie Jar of Peasants Dancing is in amazing condition. The Folk Art style cookie jar is from the 1940s and features people dancing. The dominants colors are a lovely sage green with deep red flowers. Te people wear clothes of bright yellow and red. The hand painted piece has most of its pain intact. Most of these are missing lots of their paint because of their age. Unfortunately the lid is missing. It could be used as a vase, centerpiece, a decorative piece of ceramic art for a bookshelf , kitchen cabinet display or even a kitchen utensil holders. It is still an amazing piece of mid century artwork. Absolutely gorgeous.

NO CHIPS or CRACKS!! In vintage condition, some paint chips but great condition considering age.

Vintage Raku metallic glaze ceramic table lamp.

This is a very heavy, hand thrown and Raku glazed table lamp from unknown artist. There are no markings to date this lamp. A very beautiful copper,bronze metallic glaze gives this lamp an iridescent sheen. Very beautiful and a great conversation piece once you know the history and steps of making Raku. This would fit into many different living styles with a simple change of lamp shade.The process of Raku is a Japanese method of creating artwork. It has been westernized with the different technologies now available but the process is still labor intensive. Every step to make a Raku piece is timed precisely and accurately. This piece was definitely done well as there are no cracks in the glaze or in the actual structure of the piece.

Lamp itself is 1.6″ tall and 9″ at its widest.Shade NOT included.
