Handel Adjustable Piano Table Lamp w Handel Arts & Crafts Overlay Shade, Nice~~

For sale is a piano table lamp made by The Handel Lamp Company of Meriden, CT. This table lamp is a nice size as it is fully adjustable. At its highest position it stands 15 1/4" tall and 5" at the foot's widest point. The shade has a diameter of 5 1/2" and is 4 7/8" tall out of the lamp. It has a fitter that works with 2 1/4" shade holders such as this one.

The table lamp displays "Goose Neck" form in a bronzed color patina with some hints of green. The neck has a bell socket with a round hole and 3 original Handel screws that holds the shade. These screws are similar to Tiffany Studios and are usually missing from these type lamp bases. The bell fitter with the round hole is also synonymous with Handel lamps. The base still retains its original metal flat turn key switch to turn it on and off. This works perfectly. The base has been professionally rewired with the brown rayon antique style lamp cord and antique style plug.

This base is holding an Arts and Crafts style diamond overlay pattern slag glass shade. There are 6 of these bent slag glass panels and the base color is an antique white. The top portion of the shade has an elongated overlay diamond pattern. The lower or bottom quarter of the shade has a very detailed paneled diamond overlay pattern that is similar to some Frank Lloyd Wright designs I have seen. The center of the panels have 4 diamond shapes butted up against each forming a larger diamond and these are painted in a rusty red color inside. Above and below this central pattern is a thin rectangular border with a diamond pattern on the inside corners. The inside is also done in a rusty red to match the central pattern.

The lamp is fully adjustable in 2 places. You can adjust the angle of the curved arm at the bottom and you can also adjust the angle of the shade at the ratchet above the bell socket. This is a great feature and was commonly used as a piano lamp because the base is heavy and the shade is light in weight. You can extend the shade to sit over the sheet music without fear of the lamp falling over.

The lamp base and shade is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks to any of the glass. The base has normal age wear and I applied a dark brown felt to the bottom to protect furniture. This can also be used as a table or desk lamp as it is quite versatile.The lamp base is unsigned and more than likely had a cloth label on the bottom at one time. There is no doubt as to the maker of the lamp as the base is a well documented Handel lamp base. The shade is signed at the flat bottom edge of the fitter and this is pictured.

I'm positive the buyer will be quite pleased with their purchase. This lamp was made circa 1905-1915.
