Description Stunning and elegant table lamp crafted by the Marbro Lamp Company in the 1950s. Beautifully colored porcelain body with a unique design, original double light sockets, brass detail, and on/off chain pulls.

Marbro Lamp Company was founded by the brothers Markoff in Los Angeles following the Second World War and operated as both an fine antiquities dealer and a manufacturer of upscale and unique lamps and light fixtures. What truly set the Marbro Lamp Company apart from other contemporaries was their dedication to the using fine materials from all over the world, such as porcelain from East Asia, crystal and alabaster from Europe, and brass from India to create their lamps. These fine materials, along with proprietary usage of a specific brass tinting style, made each Marbro lamp stand out as both a quality and unique product, something highly sought after in a time characterized by increased mass production in the United States. As the brothers made a name for themselves within the incredibly decadent and upscale Hollywood and Beverly Hills interior design scene, they were often personally contracted to furnish celebrity or otherwise elegant homes with both their highly-curated antiques and their remarkable lamps. As a result, Marbro Lamp Company Lamps became a true staple of Hollywood during its Golden Age.
