(On Hold) Vintage French Glazed Purple Ceramic Jar Lamp France circa 1980

A vintage French glazed ceramic vase jar lamp circa 1980 with a rich purple colour and textured surface now mounted as a custom lamp. This unique vessel is notable not only for its colour which is luscious but also for the intriguing texture of the surface that invites a touch to feel its unusual quality. The overall vessel resembles those known from Chinese originals but instead of a painted scene on the surface the minute striations that create the surface here bring to mind the seductive texture of a cantaloupe. The tall neck is circular in shape as is the round lower body with a pleasing proportion between the two. The glaze has been applied evenly so the lamp may be seen from any direction and retains its interesting appearance. The ceramic vessel has now been custom mounted on a circular Lucite base and capped at the top. The lamp has been fitted with a three way socket for a bulb in order to offer flexible light levels when the lamp is lit. In addition the lamp has a modern linen drum shade chosen to focus attention on the glazed beauty of the lamp itself.
