An exquisite pair of blue and beige earthenware oil lamps from the nineteenth-century. They are decorated with blue blossom branches and have a pretty hourglass silhouette. They are finished with bronze bases. Originally oil was filled into the canister that sits inside the lamp and a wick was threaded through the top.
