Pair of Vintage Warren Kessler opaline lamps

The only sign of age is found in several places with the gold color gilding. One lamp has intact green felt on bottom, the second lamp's felt has a tear in the middle, but has not been replaced so that the Kessler label is maintained for value.

Source: Lamps were bought in Houston in 2019 at a River Oaks Mansion estate sale. The owner of the home was the CEO of a mobile equipment company. He and his wife used the lamps on a long dresser in the master bedroom between a mirror over the dresser.
