Table Lamps Vintage Shepherd and Shepherdess Pair Old Gold Finish (ANT-385)

ANT-385  Pair of Vintage Shepherd & Shepherdess Table Lamps

Here is a very nice pair of table lamps...definitely vintage, but it has been difficult to determine an exact age.

The lamps were cast in white metal, and have a nice "old gold" finish.

The details are very charming.  The Shepherd holds a crook in his right hand, while his canine companion rests faithfully at his feet.  The Shepherdess carries a jar on her shoulder, and a lamb rests peacefully below.  All-in-all, this couple makes a lovely pastoral pair.

The pastoral motif has been around since the Greek and Roman times, but has been revived and refined throughout Western history.  The Renaissance era produced many pieces of great art in this theme.  The Victorian period also saw a resurgence in popularity of the pastoral motif.

Shepherd Measurements:

  • Height:  34 38" overall (including the shade).
  • Width:  17" overall (including the shade).
  • Footprint:  8" wide x 7 ¾" deep.

Shepherdess Measurements:

  • Height:  33 ¾" overall (including the shade).
  • Width:  17" overall (including the shade).
  • Footprint:  7 ¾" wide x 8" deep.

This pair of lamps would work great with a wide range of interior designs, including classic Victorian, French Provincial, Tuscan décor, or even traditional Farmhouse or Country.

$785.00 for this beautiful pair, plus shipping.
