A special atmosphere or mood of a particular environment – definition of Ambience. This pair of luxurious lamps by Carstens Tonnieshof of Germany is sure to set just the right mood for any environment! At just under two feet tall, (without the shades!!) this pair of table lamps is pretty large scale. They have a marvelous asymmetrical design on the lamp bodies featuring black matte and gorgeous gold glaze and they stand upon a round black painted wood base and they are wearing their original off-white linen-look hard backed drum shades. They are going to be beautiful on a pair of nightstands in your bedroom or upon a wonderful pair of end tables in the living room. They are mid-century modern in style, but they will blend in beautifully with almost any décor and they are ready to add just the right ambience to any room in your home. They’re bold, bright, beautiful, and beaming with black and gold BLISS.
Carstens Tonnieshof was founded in 1892 by brothers Ernst and Christian Hinrich Carstens in Rheinsberg (Brandenburg) Germany. Up until the 2nd world war, the company maintained production at various locations. By 1945 the company had more or less collapsed and the location in East Germany was lost. It was then that the brothers established Carstens Tonnieshof which, from 1947, was located in Fredelsloh (Niedersachsen). Carstens Tonnieshof not only produced vases, but also lamp bases and other utility ceramics. In the 1960’s Carstens expanded and by 1970 they were producing products in Austria, Chile, Australia, and Argentina. Some of the designers included Trude Carstens’ wife of Ernst Carstens, Gerda Heuckeroth, Dieter Peter, A. Seide, and Heinz Siery. Due to financial issues the company closed in 1984.
This is an incredible pair of table lamps by Carstens Tonnieshof, Germany. Table lamps of this eclectic stature won’t last long. Don’t hesitate… Make them YOURS!!!
