These lamps are quite the pair! Mid-century modern. Orange ceramic. Great design. What more could you ask? Their vase-shaped base in orange and a lighter terracotta horizontal stripes with the black interconnecting shield chain style design just screams 1950’s-60’s! They have their original shades which are in great condition and have a little orange piping to accent; but, I think they would look awesome in a new pair of black drum shades too. Don’t you? The lamps are in wonderful vintage condition. Came straight out the basement rec-room where they had been since they were new.
