Art Deco Teal Glass Boudoir Lamps

4 Dec

boudoir lamps

Found these at a recent estate sale and couldn’t resist.  These boudoir lamps are ca. 1930’s from the art deco period and are sometimes called ‘bullet lamps’.  I have also seen them described as skyscraper lamps and torpedo lamps.   They will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market as soon as I can part with them.

Manufactured by Jeannette Glass Co. during the depression, this is a lovely example of the Iris & Herringbone pattern on a 9″ high  milk glass vase, flashed in a jade colour on the outside.  This was rescued from a dump in an area where there are a lot of cottagers.  Fortunately a good friend of mine who lived in the area spotted it and knew that I would appreciate having it.  They are typically found in iridescent, clear or white milk glass and sometimes found in amberina as well.  Pink ones are rare but do exist.

Shirley Temple Cobalt Blue Jug and Eyewash Cup

Another estate find.  Shirley Temple cobalt blue creamer dates to the late 30’s .  The cobalt glass eyewash cup is probaby from the same era.  Most baby boomers and their parents would remember Shirley Temple’s movies from that era.
