A highly decorative pair of late 19th century bronze table lamps in the form of Classical Grecian figures - ADDITIONAL IMAGES CAN BE VIEWED BELOW:
The lamps consist of two Grecian female figures both dressed in Classical headdress and robes, one holding a chelys which was a stringed instrument, the common lyre of the ancient Greek period, with a convex back of a tortoiseshell, the other figure holding an artists's palette.
Each figure standing next to a decorative column which forms the lamp with a shade above, all supported on a decorative base and supported on circular ebonised wooden plinths.
Each lamp has a British Registration Design diamond mark to the base but unfortunately this cannot be deciphered, these lamps were probably originally gas lamps and converted to electric at a later date.
This pair of lamps are in very good condition for age, are in working order and can go straight into a home, however we always recommend having lighting checked by a fully qualified electrician prior to use, price includes shades.
