Item #5858 (1). An identical pair of Sinumbra Lamps. Mid-19th century. Attributed to Messenger & Sons London. An identical pair is pictured in Gowitt's Book "19th Century Elegant Lighting" page 130. Described: "The foliated embossed 10" diameter shade rings support cut and etched blown glass globes decorated with double dove designs. The fonts are flat, having no curved mold to their configuration. The foliated and reeded drip cups surmount the heavens, which - according to Greek mythology - Atlas is condemned to bear the weight of upon his shoulders. Masks, possibly the Four Winds, floral embellishments and wreathes adorn the octagonal base and plinth." Height to the shade ring: 24" and the overall height is 33.5".
