This pair of mid century hobnail glass lamps make a striking combination! In the mid century designers struggled with blending the past and the present in ways that would appeal to tastes that leaned modern but had a connection to the past. These hobnail glass lamps fit the bill perfectly. The amber glass is so incredibly hearth-like and evokes the long ago. The light up bases recall the amber glassed colonial lamps of Williamsburg but now with the sleek shades and mid century cues they were “contemporary” for young moderns evolving tastes. This pair of lamps is a great example of the way mid century designers blended history and were so very conscious of continuity in modern style. These lamps are in very good condition and only some wear to the gold finish on the bases keep them from being mint! Lamps work perfectly and feature paper shades with a rich, subtle pattern. Lamp, base or both light up and controlled by switch on socket. A gorgeous addition to your CA Atomic Ranch, Eichler Home, Levittown House or New York Penthouse.
