This is a set of authentic F.A.I.P. lamps from the mid to late 1950’s. Earlier works were of figurines,this set includes relief art of tribal dancers. Later works moved to completely abstract shapes. This is a rare set that is shaped as two matching books.F.A.I.P. lamps were made in Brooklyn, New York and were made of chalkware. Little else in known. The controversy regarding the meaning of F.A.I.P. seems to be settled since lamps with label exist that read “Fine Arts in Plastics” and have the consistent F.A.I.P. copyright mark. The labels also have a Brooklyn address.
Both lamps are in working condition. One has its original shade which I will include, and the other has its original frame. You may choose to replace the shade but you’ll have the original to match.
The color is off-white with black with a bit of gold at the top of the “pages” There are some small minor nicks in the plaster but overall in very good condition.
