condition: good
This lamp was purchased at an estate sale in 1973 and has been in storage until now.
Picked up in 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 base is made of nickel estimated to be between 80 to 100 years old.
This lamp stem has a hinge point so lamp can be tilted up to 30 degrees in two different directions as shown in pictures.
The coil of steel in the base helps stabilize this on any flat surface.
No shade was on it when found, so a shade was chosen out of older stock.
The lamp shade is estimated to be between 90 to 120 years old.
This lamp shade is made in 3 parts. Part 1 is a shell of Formica pieces that are riveted together to make the inside (very old). Part 2 is the fabric that colors the shade with fuzzy material hand glued at base. Part 3 is a sterling silver design ring that covers the other two layers and adds strength to them.
The silver on the shade has been left as originally found to preserve its age.
A newer long cord has been added along with NEW lamp socket insert replacement as well.
Lamp comes with new super cool LED light bulb and it is advised to always use a very cool lamp as to keep the shade coloring intact for many years.
Base of lamp measures 6 inches tall and 5 inches round at base.
Shade is 3 and 1/2 inches tall.
Unit is 8 and 1/2 inches tall total.
