All original and very rare Handel Arts & Crafts period adjustable desk lamp with a beautiful large signed Quezal fishnet iridescent glass shade. Lamp has been cleaned, waxed and rewired (period cord and plug). Original (100+ years old) bronze over copper plating finish on base still intact and in excellent condition. The heavy round cast base has an intentional roughness that enhances the refined intricacy of a filigree overlay medallion. The stem, the beautiful socket cover and remaining parts on this lamp are all bronze, not plated like the base.
The original nuts, wing nuts, Tiffany type shade screws and original early Hubbell keyed socket all retain the original matching bronze finish. I replaced the felt under the base, and unfortunately the Handel tag is missing.Conserved, rewired, vintage style cloth covered cord and plug. Measurements: Base height 16" and 8" diameter, Shade 4" tall, 7.5" diameter. The lamp is quite heavy for its size as it weighs 16 lbs without double boxing Amazing rare piece! Please examine the photos carefully as they most accurately represent the condition.
I'll be happy to answer any questions concerning this lamp. I take great pride in my packing skills and avoid peanuts and over-taping for your unpacking convenience.
