Pair of Antique Dutch Delft Vases, Holland circa 1875, Now Mounted as Custom Lamps

This pair of tall glazed antique Dutch Delft vases from Holland circa 1875 are each embellished with hand-painted details and colors and mounted as a pair of impressively scaled table lamps. Please notice the elaborate form of these vases with their octagonal shape reminiscent of the finest Persian and Indian ceramic vessels. The overall painted decoration includes both geometric forms and floral motifs on each of the eight facets that comprise the form of each vase. The large flat planes that make up the shape of each vase have been individually hand decorated with the exact size motif that best shows off the variation in size from larger to smaller areas. The custom lamp bases are also octagonal in profile to complement the vases with the brass metal providing a subtle gleam against the ceramic material. There is a simple metal arm that ascends behind each vase to support each of the custom lamp shades. The shades also feature a unique shaped profile with the raw silk embellished with hand applied trim in a colour combination that visually relates to the hand painted colors seen in each vase. The impressive scale of the custom mounts emphasize the unique quality of the Delft ware by providing a suitably impressive frame.
