This vintage set of Roseville lamps stand 21" overall finial to base, and 10" for the pottery portion. The hardware, which is beautiful, appears to be original to the lamps, both appointed exactly the same, finial to base plate. The are glazed in a yellow/green glaze of the Topeo, Orian or perhaps Victorian Art-type design. Mark Bassett lists this lamp base in his 'Understanding Roseville Pottery' book as Victorian Art. There are old after market labels under the base, which read 'Rv lamp ?Yel/Orb? 481 Ea. THL' and '481@Gold Rv Topeo Red TTL'. Clearly, someone along the way believed these to be Topeo-type. This set was in an old collection of Roseville Pottery and have always been together according to the family. They have a blossom design of a yellow flower one each side and appear to be under glazed in yellow with a green overglaze, which makes a beautiful glaze presentation. They are finished in a glossy sheen. This set is in near original condition with a small sliver glaze chip at the apex of one handle ornament as shown in the photos. The pottery is not chipped, just a simple glaze chip. The rims and bases under the hardware are in original condition, no wear or damage noted. They have double sockets, which may have been replaced at some point and both sockets work on each lamp. We did take these apart to check for marks and each is marked in pencil 'R15', Roseville's shape number for this lamp form, and shown in the photos. Whatever the glaze-type, this set of lamps is a fairly rare set and to have a pair is wonderful. They make a fabulous Art Deco presentation, you will not be disappointed. Shipping for this pair will be based upon your zip code. If questions, please ask.
