When you come across the name Barsony in Australia, they are usually referred to as black lady lamps. Some are purely attractive while others were used as ashtrays or vases. The most desirable are those that come with the original shade in genuine 1950's colours pink, yellow, red or aqua, usually contrasted with black. For the collector of retro pieces, the name Barsony is well known.
