Barsony Ceramics in Australia, they are generally known as black lady lamps. Some are purely decorative while others were used as ashtrays or flower vase. The most popular are those that come with the original shade in genuine retro colours pink, yellow, red or aqua, typically contrasted with black. For the enthusiast of antique pieces, the name Barsony is well known.
This gorgeous Barsony head lamp the couple is in good condition. The woman has a tiny hairline mark halfway around her neck which possibly has been repaired and painted over as some time. It appears as a very fine line. The woman still has both her original earrings, and the base is marked FL-45 and BARSONY. It sold in August 2009 in Australia for $255.00 (AUD).
