Midcentury Don Quixote Ceramic Table Lamps

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

These wonderful lamps depict scenes from "The Man of La Mancha", the tale of the legendary Don Quixote. The scenes are executed in hand-painted and glazed ceramic. They depict: Don Quixote on his horse in front of the windmills, Don Quixote being "knighted" by the innkeeper, Sancho atop his horse, and Don and Sancho under a fruit tree. The ceramic bodies are mounted on original painted wooden bases, and display a lovely aged patina. Both lamps work very well with two standard sockets with pull chains. New shades were custom made and added.
