    A Table Lamp by Richard-Ginori

    The Antique and Vintage Table Lamp Co

    The Antique & Vintage Table Lamp Co  has added a classically proportioned table lamp to its collection.

    The 1930’s table lamp is a good example from this acknowledged era of smart design.

    When it comes to good design, no matter if its a chair, a building or table lamp, without the design eye that sees balanced proportion, the design will fail. The key to good design is always a harmonious balance between the elements used.

    Italy has a long respected reputation for excellence in design with contemporary names like Armani, Gucci & Versace.

    The house of Ginori was established in 1735 by the Marchese Carlo Ginori, (1702-1757), with Ginori’s first porcelain manufactory at Doccia near Florence.

    Ginori’s porcelain manufacture was continued without a break by his three sons.

    The company remained in the hands of the Ginori heirs until 1896 when it was incorporated into the Richard of Milan company, as Richard-Ginori.

    Gio Ponti served as artistic director of the company from 1923 into the1930’s, the period in which this lamp was produced.

    The Richard-Ginori company which produces most of the high quality Italian porcelain today has its own purpose built museum to display its beautiful collection of Doccia/Richard-Ginori porcelain, right up to today.

    The 1930’s table lamp is also included in its display collection.

    The Antique and Vintage Table Lamp Co has a range of antique lighting on view and silk lampshade service.
