PAIR of VINTAGE Marbro (1945 – 1990) high quality HUGE table lamps. Asian design ginger jar shape classic, timeless and elegant. Marbro was founded shortly after WWII ended in 1945 by 2 brothers. Located in the garment district of Los Angeles, California, they catered to very high end customers including movie stars such as Deborah Shelton (Dallas) and Jack Webb (Dragnet) just to name a couple. Never were they found in chain furniture stores or discount gasp! Every item was custom ordered and made from the finest quality found during that time frame. While the shape appears to be Asian, to us the bodies appear to be Italian made. The lamps bear the Marbro labels and on one has the number 7268. The base of these lamps measure approximately 9 1/2 inches diameter – we cannot tell what the composition is. The widest girth/width of the body of each lamp is approximately 9 1/2 inches across. The lamp from base to satin finish brass finial is 36 inches tall/high. Each lamp has 2 light bulbs/sockets that can be turned on/off by the chains or by the switch in the electric cord. Electric wiring appears to be original to the lamps. As always we strongly recommend electrical items to be checked and rewired for safety. We see NO chips, cracks or crazing of the porcelain/potty bodies. The shape of the ginger jar is all one piece construction. The ginger jar measures approximately 17 1/2 inches. The satin brass post and finials measure approximately 17 inches tall/high from the top of the body of the lamp. Satin brass has very slight spotting consistent with age, use and lovely high humidity of Florida. A beautiful pair of quality workmanship and history. Lamps to be handed down from generation to generation. They will be packed in 2 separate boxes for safety. Normal wear is expected with vintage, antique and/or pre-owned condition. Smoke free environment. Many items we deal with are previously owned aka used, vintage and/or antique. They are NOT pristine, unless noted in the description. We can and do make an honest mistake. We are NOT in the business of trying to mislead or take advantage of buyers. THANK YOU for looking at this listing.
