Barsony Indian Boy Lamp with original Starburst Ribbon Shade

Barsony Ceramics, synonymous with the production of matt black coloured ceramics from the 1950s and 1960s, was an Australian ceramics manufacturing company operated by George Barsony (1917-2010) and Jean Barsony from the early 1950s to the early 1970s.

George Barsony, a sculptor from Hungary arrived in Australia as a refugee in 1949 and shortly after, met his future wife Jean who had come to Australia from England and worked in a Sydney pottery studio.

Together they set up Barsony Ceramics, and the company’s operations were conducted from a factory in Guildford, Western Sydney from the 1950s to 1970s. George designed the lamps & figurines and Jean hand painted them.

This fairly rare lamp is priced at $950. You will need to contact the store to purchase. If interested, please call 02 9699 1089.
