We're selling a beautiful handmade pottery piece made into a large table lamp. My mother in-law loved blue! We inherited this piece from her lake cottage furnishings. It does not fit into our own decor for the cottage. My in-laws brought this piece back to New England in the fall of 1973 after a whirlwind Airstream tour of just about every National Park and tourist site west of the Missisippi! The only story we know about it is that the man selling it to them said, "it was thrown to be a lamp, it wasn't a jug that was drilled to be electrified". We loosened the wooden base. There are no trademarks and it is not drilled. There is just a rough hole in the middle of the base where the threaded rod fits through to secure the base. The entire piece stands 30" tall. The jug is 16" tall on top of a 3" high round wooden pedestal base. The harp is worn brass, 11.5" high on a wood colored shaft. The full girth of the vessel is about 12" in a bulbous shape. It has 2 large jug handles and 2 small "ring" handles; we've seen similar Southwest pottery small handles holding ceramic rings. The harp has a functional but crimped brass finial. The socket works fine, but is not set up for a 3 way bulb. The cord is vintage, as is the plug, which is non-polarized, typical of the 1950-60’s. Chances are, they bought this in an antique store back in 1973. It is very similar to some Fulper Art Pottery pieces, but much larger in scale. It's the shades and mesmerizing drips of blues and whites that make this piece special! Included as many photos as we could to do justice to it. Weighs a hefty 12 lbs! We will double box after "bombproof" bubble-wrapping! Enjoy Shipping quoted is for CONUS only. However, we do ship most items we offer, worldwide. Please email us for a shipping quote. All Customs, Duties and Taxes are the Buyer’s Responsibility. (Shade not included). Feel free to ask a question before offering to purchase! We enjoy communicating with our customers and want you to make your purchase with full confidence in the quality and provenance of the item. We take great pride in our packing! We keep it as “green” as possible. When we use popcorn or bubble-wrap it is mostly “used” 2nd generation stock. Please recycle it or re-re-use it again! We strive to keep our carbon footprint as tiny as possible!
