Description

The lamps stand on circular ormolu (gilt bronze) plinths, which are decorated with scrollwork and set on outward-turned feet. The lamps feature faience (tin-glazed earthenware) bodies with bulbous bases and slender cylindrical necks. These are decorated with Persian style motifs, including stylised flowers, leafy vines, geometric motifs and inscriptions. They are covered with a blue glaze, which was invented by the potter Joseph-Théodore Deck and became known as ‘bleu de Deck’. The lamps are topped by ormolu light fixtures.

These lamps have been attributed to Joseph-Théodore Deck, a celebrated ceramicist active in France in the late 19th Century. Deck established a faience workshop in the mid-19th Century and began to experiment in the Islamic and Chinese styles.

Lamps: normal height 64cm, extended height 70cm
