    Hi All,
    I've had this pair of lamps for many years, bought them at an estate sale & had them rewired. Shades are not original. Time for them to find a new home.
    Measure 33" tall to top socket, non-magnetic metal, I'm guessing brass. 6-sided, lights have 4 settings. Probably more info than necessary:)
    Hoping someone can help me with the style or approximate age. I've looked at gothic, brass, bronze, glass insert, medieval, brutalist...can't find anything like them. Likely I'm completely off base. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!! Nancy

    These are late 60s or so. Think the shades could be original but you may know better. Style might best be termed Hollywood Regency, which is a style coined for this vintage over the top style popular in the 60s. Could also be 70s Spanish revival if the shades are truly not original.

    I like the ott look of it.
    Here in Europe it would be classed as Orientalist, which is not connected to a specific period but just refers to the design inspiration. The oriental influence in this case is in the coloured glass inserts and filigree-like metalwork, and the palm trees.

    I guess it is those ott palm trees that would make it Hollywood Regency in the US.

    Hi,
    My friend would give her eye teeth for those lamps. She has a wonderful Turkish smoking room in her house.

    holy -- !

    Where would those two (!) magnificent shades have come from? seem original to me :)

    I think Hollywood Regency could be dating them too new... imo

    All terms above are productive. I might add Morrocan or Moorish. Definitely Filagree.

    Nancy Jean, what did the original wiring and plug look like? Do you still have them?

    I *think* those shades are pierced and punched, not filigree @ineedhelp + just beautiful! I'd go with the orientalist - some of us yanks know what that means :)

    Although... I did take a class from a collector who thought when I used that term I meant Chinese or Japanese, so there you go :)

    I agree, but The World Of Google favors both, filagree and pierced. :hilarious:
    Maybe best I not confuse matters with my thought process. ;)

    Yes, they are.
    I know, you're a savvy lot.:D We're not, most people here have never heard of Hollywood Regency.

    (Which may account for us ranking high on the world happiness index.....:muted::bag::sorry:)

    These were chandeliers I found using filagree and Morrocan.

    Ditto that: "Moroccan filigree brass lamp shade antique" turned up the one I found :)

    Well, it certainly gives a dramatic filigree effect which is what they were probably going for... Maybe there actually true filigree lampshades out there? Imagine that :wideyed:!

    Anyways, I don't think the ebay keyword narcs would flag for that, lol
