April showers brings May, actually, June––flowers; flowers bursting of vibrant beautiful color, just like this large pair of crackle-glaze ceramic lamps in a richly-colored turquoise by Frederick Cooper here at epoca. These lamps are a perfect example of the extraordinary quality associated with the Frederick Cooper Lamp Company established in Chicago in 1923. Frederick was a Chicago artist and was fascinated with the new invention of lamps and tried to incorporate the elements and flavors of American architecture of that time which has been carried on through the generations. Visit our gallery at 1700 16th street @ Kansas to see these and other fabulous lamps at epoca and the new home of Garden Court Antiques. See you soon!
