Great condition—no chips, cracks or repairs—on this pair of antique and highly unusual Shepherd and Sheep table lamps. As shown, this original matching pair feature a statue grouping of an old shepherd tending to a flock of seven sheep while carrying a lamb cradled in his left arm. The shepherd wears a broad-brimmed hat, long flowing robe and extends a long wooden hook to nudge one of the sheep back to the flock.
Each statue is thickly plated in copper which has built up a warm patina over the past 100+ years. Although these are heavy (each weighs 3.5 lbs.), they are certainly not solid copper and are probably filled with composition. Still, the copper is thick and all-over (including the bottom) such that they appear to be solid copper.
Each lamp measures 6 ½” wide by 11 5/8” tall and each works fine. Really an impressive pair.
