Please take a look, ask questions, and let me know if you need any additional pictures. Everyone knows Tiffany, Handel, Duffner.......But most people have never heard of the R. Williamson lamp company who made this fabulous lamp. They were a smaller Chicago-based company that competed with the other's I mentioned but had their own unique style. They are highly collectible and rarely found. I have not owned many myself, and this one is really quite special.
I've seen florals, geometrics, and just about everything in between from other makers of that time period..... But have never seen a nautilus boarder shade. Its just a very unique design and will stand out among your more run-of-the-mill varieties.Just a wonderful design made with some really great glass. The shade is 18" in diameter and the lamp stands just over 24" tall. I see 2 or 3 small hairlines in the glass, but nothing major. All original hardware, old sockets with their original porcelain interiors, and old ball ended pull chains. Base has been wired with period style black cloth braided cord and an original old plug and comes ready to use and enjoy. This is a really rare lamp from a relatively obscure maker that doesn't get offered very often. They don't get much better than this in terms of color or condition, so don't let this one pass you by.
The last image is a black and white picture that I got from a friend of mine that shows this nautilus lamp from an actual R. Sorry for the quality of the image, but that's the best I can do. It has just become too difficult and costly to do so effectively. It is actually much better for both of us this way as they will fully guarantee it to get there without damage and if something happens they will 100% stand behind it without any claims hassle. I have worked with this UPS Store over many years and they do a great job with things like this.You are also more than welcome to come and get it yourself, or if we are close I can meet you somewhere with it. 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. Williamson Nautilus Shell Leaded Slag Stained Glass Duffner Tiffany Era Lamp" is in sale since Sunday, October 22, 2017.
