Pair of Terracotta Roman Classical Figures by L. Hjorth as Lamps

About

Wonderful pair of terracotta figures dressed as male and female warriors both signed on the reverse of the base: L Hjorth 541 Enerst. These classic 19th century works have been mounted on bases and are now offered as lamps. Newly rewired with custom glossy black shades. I would speculate that the figures became lamps in the 1930s.
