For sale is an Arts and Crafts style panel glass table lamp made by an unknown maker. The lamp is a nice size for a desk as it stands 18 1/4" tall to the top of the metal crown. The shade is measure 12 1/2" square and it measures 17 3/4" diagonal. The shade measures 7 1/2" tall of the base.
The shade displays a wonderful Arts & Crafts 4 sided shape with a thin border metal overlay leaf and scroll on lattice pattern. This overlay pattern sits against a swirled mint to leaf green background glass. The exterior of the glass is smooth and the interior has a grain. This is early Kokomo Glass made in Kokomo, Indiana. The shade has a 4 sided crown to give it height. This shade sits on a 4 sided art Nouveau style base that compliments this shade wonderfully. The shade has 4 wires welded to the inside of the shade and a round fitter ring. The shade mounts into this fitter on the base with 3 thumb screws to hold it in place. The single round pull chain socket works fine.
The shade and base are considered to be in very good to excellent condition. The base is clean and shows typical age wear. I show the underside of the base before I put felt on it to protect your furniture. The underside shows 4 raised heart shapes in the metal. The cord way is actually threaded inside as it was a port to take fuel at one time. You can see this when you turn the base upside down and the fact that it has a fitter with 3 screws to hold the shade. This is know as the transitional period from gas to early electric. The shade is in excellent condition as none of the glass has any cracks nor has any ever been replaced. It has all of it original glass. The shade and the base are unsigned so I cannot determine the maker but know it is vintage based on the glass and base style. The single socket is signed with a letter "F" in a circle 250 W 250V. The base has been professionally re-wired with the antique style brown rayon cord and it still retains its original lamp plug. Lamps like this just don't get any better.
This lamp was made circa 1905-1910 during the transitional period of lighting. This is a quality lamp that will surely enhance and arts and crafts, mission style home. It will also work in a Victorian home as well. It would look wonderful on a Stickley Arts and Crafts style desk or table!!
THIS LAMP WILL BE SHIPPED IN 2 SEPARATE BOXES
