Please take a look, ask questions, and let me know if you need any additional pictures. This is a very unusual Handel/Unique leaded glass table lamp. I say unusual since I have never seen one with water lilies or pink background. Periwinkle Unique shades are fairly common, but I don't think water lilies are.Both the flowers and even the background glass are very unusual and simply outstanding. The dark greens in the leaves really contrast well with the predominantly white petals of the water lilies, and the pink background glass just pulls it all together beautifully. I will let my pictures do most of the talking here and as you can see from them the lamp displays extremely well and would look awesome in any setting. In terms of size, this is a rather large lamp with an 18" diameter shade that stands 24" tall.
In terms of condition, I see a couple of small cracks here and there, but nothing serious. There are no replaced pieces and the shade has that nice rattle of an old and original lamp.
Patina on both the shade and base is just outstanding. For those of you who are new to this, the shade was made by Unique and the base is Handel.
Unique did not sign their shades and the ones that are signed HANDEL should be looked at as being very suspicious as copies were made in the 1970's. The base is signed HANDEL with a metal tag in the bottom as pictured.
It has been wired with period style cloth braided cord and a nice old plug and comes ready to use and enjoy. These things need to be double boxed and packed really well.
If you like lamps or need parts please feel free to look at my other auctions or contact me. That being said, please do not embarrass yourself with a lowball offer thinking you are going to get such a lamp like this.
It is just a waste of both of our times. If you want to get a cheap lamp, go to WalMart or Ikea.
