Antique Chinoiserie Porcelain Table Lamps Signed Potenzano & F. Rabe, A Pair
A pair of Chinoiserie lamps, signed Potenzano and F. These lamps are steeped in symbolism. An elderly Chinese man and woman made of porcelain, bowed slightly in greeting, represent longevity; the man with a beard and mustache and the woman with three wrinkles. Each are dressed in traditional Mandarin court clothes (high ranking Chinese public officials from the Qing Dynasty circa 1899) or ceremonial’Dragon Robes’ embroidered with golden dragons. In Chinese symbolism dragons represent strength and the power of water whilst warding away greed and avarice. The man wears a court necklace and is holding a scroll, a symbol of knowledge. The woman’s Dragon Robes are trimmed in red, which corresponds with good fortune and joy. She is also wearing earrings of Jade, which when paired with gold symbolize lavish riches. She holds a hand mirror, to promote marital happiness. Both are wearing blue which represents immortality and advancement. Square bases made of brass are decorated with lattice piercing. The stems that support the shades can be turned to face any direction. Wired and in working condition. 8.0W × 9.75D × 38.0H, s. Hades measure 14.75″ x 18.5″.
