the potters of wall street

I was 
library
fishing today
and found a stash
of black and white photographs
of some unusual lamps
by 
The Potters of Wall Street.
It seems that Harris Strong founded the company here in 
NYC
(Brooklyn actually)
in the late 1940s.
Above is a picture of either Harris 
or
Robert Krasner
his partner in the venture.

"Minotaur"

"Mask"

"Arch"

"Tripod"

"Tattoo"

"Rebus"

"Torso"

"Fetish"

Ashtrays
I had one of these once.
Gave it away I think?

More for the smoker.

Original price list from 1950.

  1. Wow, they weren't cheap in 1950's dollars, but they look like they were well worth it!

    Great find.
