Antique Chinese Table Lamps

From the stalwart blue and white transfer print to gorgeous provincial cloisonne bases, Chinese table lamps can help your interior pay homage to the wonders of the Far East. Adding dashes of home decor that take influences from different periods and geographical regions can create a charming eclectic aesthetic.

For the traditionalist, a beautiful famille rose antique Chinese table lamp adds colour with its hand-painted facade and gold gilt detailing. For a less ornate nod to the Orient, a pair of early 20th century wooden carved dragon table lamp bases exude honey hues that mirror the amber glow of the light they emit.

Chinese table lamp styles

While you could opt for an Anglepoise or articulated lamp for your home office desk, an elegant Chinese table lamp could inspire you to be more productive. With an array of styles to choose from, it can be challenging to know where to start. You could take a look at enamelled porcelain lamps. These tend to be heavily glazed with famile vert or green and iron red scenes and patterns delicately hand-painted on the bases. Alternatively, Wucai antique table lamps are decorated with a very limited palette. An underglaze of cobalt blue provides the outline of the teahouse or Chinese battle scene before being filled in with blacks, golds and reds. And why not explore a tradition Oriental lantern lamp to really emulate the cobbled streets of old Beijing or Shanghai?

Why buy an antique Chinese table lamp?

For a more bespoke finish to your home decor, a one-of-a-kind Chinese antique lamp can elevate your side table, bring awe and wonder to your dining space, and add a smattering of Far Eastern sophistication to your desk.
