Turquoise & Blue Ceramic and Teak Table Lamps by Quartite Creative Corp. USA, 1960s.
Large bouclé custom shades created by a Manhattan designer specifically for these lamps.
Secondary brass on/off switch on the ceramic base. Classic original Quartite finials and harps. Recently professionally rewired with new bulb sockets and new brass on/off switch.
These lamps stand 49.25" H to the top of the shades.
28.25ʺ H (to the bottom of the lamp socket) x 8” D
Shades are 22" H X 17" D
These lamps are in beautiful overall condition.
The stem and ceramic orb on one lamp do not meet perfectly. They are just slightly off-center. During rewiring, we discovered that this is due to an off-center hole in the ceramic piece (as it was originally fired and glazed). Upon reassembly, we aligned the pieces so that they appear in perfect alignment from the front, and are only slightly noticeable from the side. We view it as a charmingly "perfect imperfection" in this vintage pair, a la the imperfections intentionally incorporated into the making Persian rugs. Please see photos.
