Pair of Lotte & Gunnar Bostlund Ceramic Lamps with Original Shades


This stunning pair of tall ceramic lamps were handcrafted in the 1960s by Danish potters Lotte & Gunnar Bostlund. The subtle glazing variations in matte gunmetal glaze is spectacular. Featuring their three-tier original brass finials and uniquely designed original fiberglass lampshade with a hand-applied jute strand for a very organic look while also giving off a lovely warm light. Wired for North American lighting standards a neat little known feature of the lamps is that the excess cord can be stored inside the lamp base. In fabulous condition. The Bostlund family moved from Copenhagen to Toronto in the mid-1950s. The husband and wife team built a successful ceramic design business that carries on to this day. The height measurements are to the top of the socket.
