Pair Hand-Painted Opaline Vase Lamps Made in France ca. 1840 Newly Electrified

About

We are pleased to offer this pair of exquisite opaline vases now made into newly electrified lamps. The lamps are decorated all around with beautiful hand-painted roses on the stem, along with their leaves and rosebuds. The roses on their stems wind around the vase, a pattern that was in vogue in France during the first half of the 19th century. A band of candy cane red and white wraps around the neck of each vase. The vases sit on bright gold ormolu bases which are decorated with golden grapes and grape leaves. They were made in France circa 1840, during the reign of Louis Philippe, crafted from opaline glass which is smooth and white. Opaline glass was extremely popular in France during the 19th century. Its white coloring and smooth finish allowed painters to use enamel colors which show off beautifully when applied to the translucent opaline surface. The variety of colors include pink, dusty pink, orange and a variety of greens, and blues. Dimensions: 14.75 inches tall x 6 inches at the widest point. Condition: Excellent Price: $ 3,100 for the pair Background Opaline glass is a decorative style of glass made in France from 1800-1890s. All opaline glass is handblown and has a rough or polished pontil on the bottom. There are no seams and no machine engraving. Opaline reached its peak of popularity during the reign of Napoleon III circa 1850. Opaline glass is defined as semi-crystal. The glass is slightly translucent. The primary influences on this style of glass were 16th century Venetian milk glass, and English white glass produced in 18th century Bristol. The popularity of Opaline glass began during the reign of Napoleon. Cities involved in the production included Le Creusot, Baccarat, and Saint-Louis, Reunion.
