Pair of Van Briggle Butterfly Lamps!

Two examples of factory- made lamps from the Design #688.  The size is larger than the regular #688.  These are approximately 4″ in width, and 4 1/4″ in height.   The glaze is Moonglo, produced in 1940s to 1960s.  Very difficult to find a matched pair!  

From the Private Collection of Jeff Brooks.  Thank you for sharing!
