Bedside Babes

Of this gorgeous pair of antique boudoir lamps the seller says:

9.25"X 10"Antique Germany HALF-DOLL BOUDOIR LAMP-BOX
Beautiful condition, Clean Hidden Jewelry box in Bottom

Gorgeous all original rayon satin swaths these Half-Doll Lamps in a golden-yellow glow. The wire-frame lamps are in near mint condition, only needing electrical re-wiring because of age, and new low-watt round bulbs. The two china half-dolls are incised "GERMANY" and are twin Flappers with molded black bobbed hair, black eyes & brows, rosy cheeks and slightly smiling closed mouths. Their arms are bent at the elbows with hands together at their waists, and molded lavender-painted thin-strap bodices. Crocheted cotton lace and French ribbon-rose braid gracefully trim the crescent moon lamps, which measure 10" tall, 9.25" wide and 5" front-to-back. The box bottoms are 1" deep plus the 4" domed under the half-doll. Under the dolls' two-layer skirts is a wire-frame ovoid box for concealing jewelry or love letters, or the electric cord if not in use for illumination!
