This listing is for a charming pair of lamps that remind me of 1940's movie set. EACH columnar base is wrapped in a different but related New York Graphic Society print by noted American Folk Artist E. The Hollywood Regency style metallic gold drum shades are large, measuring 16" tall by 15" diameter.The NYGS prints by Bolstad are of old New York, both different but related scenes of a firetrucks and a charming street scene with apartments, people, and shops. The base and cap on the columns are wood, the original eagle finials are intact. Each lamp stands 33.5" tall including the shade, the columnar base, foot to cap is 14". The lamps are in nice vintage condition.
From what I can find, the NYGS began in circa 1925 and E. Melvin Bolstad was born in 1901. I read a forum where a woman recalled her mother, in the early 1940's, saving an E Melvin Bolstad print from her office.So these lamps may be circa 1940s. One lamp has a small flaw to the paper at the base (see penultimate photo). The shades, for their age are beautiful and show beautifully.. Up close you will see a couple of flaws.
The worst flaw in my opinion is a dent in the top of one, and two other flaws are rubs or marks,, all can be seen in the last photo. Any overage I will reimburse promptly.. If I underestimate I will cover.
