Pair Of Large Lava Glaze Lamps With Original Shades

lgl

As you may already know, Mel and I are lamp junkies. So, it should be no surprise that we would decorate with numerous lamps. I have always loved this kind of finish on lamps. Some folks call this type of finish volcano, lava or drip glaze. Whatever they call it, I love it.

As usual, I was cruising Craigslist and saw that these were being sold at a shop in Paradise, California. The ad only showed one of these lamps, so I was pleasantly surprised to see two of them!

These lamps are breathtaking in person. I love the shots of cobalt and chartreuse.

I am especially fond of these style lamps because of the secondary lighting behind the cutouts. As with most lamps of this period with this sort of finish, there is crazing.

This set came with the original lampshades that are in fantastic condition. The fabric ring they placed around the shades matches the fabric shade inside the body of the lamp.

These will definitely be conversation pieces.

Here is another set we picked up in Chico last weekend. These are made of heavy plaster unlike the ones above that are made of ceramic.

This set also has secondary lighting inside the main body of the lamps. I need to replace the bulbs inside and it appears it isn’t as easy as just replacing a bulb.

These lamps have the same finishing process as the ones above.

These also have the original shades with them. Both sets have a funkiness to them that I think will give our place a cool vide.
