Recent Prominent Washington, DC area estate sale find. Looks like nothing was modified nor refurbished on this lamp; including the original wiring and cord (possibly the bulb socket, but we're not sure). A four panel, partially nude figure (same figure on each panel) embossed on frosted glass.Excellent working condition with no chips, cracks, or stains. Removable top looks to be a high sheen black glass and the base is black enameled metal. Just some slight aging on the base, but no damage and looks like it could be easily buffed into a high sheen finish. Truly a survivor from the art deco period.
These Tiffin lamps are rare, and very seldom do you find them as original and complete as this example, especially in this condition. As a note, this cord and wiring is most likely 75 to 80 years old. If you're planning on using this lamp on a regular basis, it would be highly recommended to have it professionally rewired to a modern code. The wiring looks great, the lamp functions perfectly and the switch is firm and tight, but it is hardware from the early 20th century.
