Barsony Lamp Collection So Far....

Thought I would do a post on my lamp collection so far.

We are up to 50 pieces now and trying to slow down, however, we keep managing to find pieces we dont have.

For those who are not familiar with the work of the late George Barsony, he was a talented Hungarian Sculptor who arrived in Australia in 1949. George and his wife Jean set up Barsony Ceramics in Guildford which is in western Sydney.

Throughout the 50s, 60s and 70s they were famous for their range of Black Lady Lamps and figurines, however, they didnt just make Black ladies, they also made lamps in a lustre, white, brown and even gold finish. There are also lamps of fish and a poodle lamp, however the most sought after are the quite possibly the larger dancing ladies. They also marked their pieces under the names of Venice and Silver Cloud, though I am still yet to come across any 'Venice' pieces.

Many of these lamps we marked underneat with prefixes such as FL48, HL4, as well as stickers such as "An Original George Barsony Ceramic".

George has only just recently passed away in 2010 at the age of 93.

If you have any questions regarding these lamps, or if there any particular pieces you are after or wish to sell, just send me an email at .

I also sell hoop and pearl earrings on eBay to complete your lamp, just check out my items for sale here!! You can also buy beautiful reproduction ribbon shades here.

Hope you enjoy the pictures of my prized possesions!

  5. Hey! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask. Does running a well-established website
    like yours require a massive amount work? I'm completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary everyday.
    I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas
    or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.

  9. I enjoyed looking at your collection of lamps and especially like the ribbon shades that go with them so perfectly. How ever did you get interested in collecting these lamps? It would be so much fun decorating a feminine bedroom around one of them.
