condition: fair
This lamp was purchased at an estate sale in 1973 and has been in storage until now.
Picked up in the Cherry Creek neighborhood from a large corner mansion that had belonged to a lamp maker and designer with well over 600 lights in the house.
As back stock for my mom’s antique store, it would have been nice to get this sold long ago.
However, mom is 82 and closed in 2005, so this unit has to go.
No date or markings on this lamp can be found.
Lamp is solid BRASS and based off its design, we estimate the age to be between 100 to 120 years old.
Complete tear down and rebuild was necessary to get it back to looking good again.
This lamp is very old, and as with most very old brass, cracking can and will happen.
Many cracks are in the top section of the base in the brass, but the unit is still solid enough to work well.
Cord and lamp socket are in full working order and socket has been cleaned as well.
The socket on this unit is touchy as it appears to be original, but still clicks in to light the lamp correctly.
Base of lamp measures 8 inches tall and 5 inches round.
Shade is thick Glass and 5 inches tall to make total lamp height 13 inches.
