The cap is also very characteristic of that company. It is absolutely a period 1900's shade and sure looks like Bigelow & Kennard, but is not signed so I cannot guarantee it. These guys usually signed their shades, so why this one is not signed is unknown. Regardless of this, the shade is just over the top beautiful and has some of the best green/blue glass in any shade I have ever owned.
This glass contrasts very well with the floral boarder which reminds me of Tiffany's acorns and banded florals. 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 arts & crafts setting. In terms of size, the shade measures 16" in diameter and the lamp stands 21" tall. In terms of condition, I see maybe a crack or two here and there, but nothing serious.
There are no replaced pieces and the shade has that nice rattle of an old and original. The base is solid brass (as all Bigelow & Kennard bases were) and is quite heavy and well made. It has its old sockets and matching Bryant shells with Bryant turn keys and has been wired with period style cloth braided cord and a nice original plug. 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.
