First, allow me to thank you for taking a look at these two lamps that I came across at an estate sale. The elderly woman I purchased them from reported that they were her sisters pride and joy. She had purchased the set in the late 40's early 50's and took extraordinary. They are solid pieces and I believe they are plaster. They are in great condition with green felt on the bottom that appears to be original - but there is no stamp or anything else.

I am curious to know whether anyone on here an tell me anything about these unique lamps. I have looked online and have not been able to find anything that looks exactly like them - some similar, but nothing exact. If you know anything or can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. They look like a set on eBay that said mid-century so I tagged it this way in hopes someone could tell me more.

Thank you, and happy browsing ;-)

    The lamp is from 1949, it would have a hand signed mark at the lower back bottom of it from German artist Van Cleff. I know this because my Aunt has the same exact one. Her father bought it in the 1960s. I have been looking online for one for sale because I like hers a lot and I ran across your page. I thought I would share the little I know :-) - Elizabeth Menefee
