There is something special about this lamp. Im told by family that it is an antique vintage 1930s or 40s jadeite lamp. It really is quite enchanting. It seems to have a certain amount of translucency to it.
In certain light it almost glows! There are no makers marks but I think it is by Houze based on others Ive seen on the internet although I cant be sure.
Did other companies produce this shape? I believe Houze used stickers which often fall off after so many years.Unfortunately there are some chips in the jadeite. (See photos) FORTUNATELY the chips are positioned on the back- or can be. Each of the jadeite components that make up the base, can move independent of each other so if the chipped areas get swiveled, you can swivel them back very easily.
Overall, at first sight, the chips are difficult to see anyway, because of the nature of this jadeite. It is so gorgeous you dont notice any small details- you only notice the almost glowing QUALITY and enchanting composition of the jadeite itself. (See photos for closeups) The first time I saw it, I gasped. It took my breath away. I didnt see the chips until I began photographing it.Approximate measurements; the lamp is 12.5 inches tall from base to the top of socket. The Base diameters 5.5. The shades in the photos are not a part of the listing but are there for display purposes only.
The lamp requires a clip-on shade or uno type shade. It is not equipped with a harp. This lamp was rewired many years ago so its wiring is not in its original condition. I know this because the original wire which was a ragged yellow cloth wire was stored with this lamp. I dont know what year they rewired it.It works fine for me but want you to be sure and be safe. The previous owner has been gone for 20 years so at the very least, the wiring is 20 yrs old but I know it was longer ago than that- I just dont know exactly when it was done. I hate to part with this beauty. Im downsizing and have more stuff than I can keep so it is all going up for your consideration. If youd like to, take a look at my other listings where you will find three generations of vintage items and some not-so-vintage items.
I have lots of home decor pieces such as lamps- so many lamps, wall sconces, pottery, lamp shades, mid century modern items, just to name a few. I also have lots of mens clothing but so far, have been focusing on getting just the ties listed- there are so many beautiful and some kooky ties- both contemporary and vintage.
I think my Father-in-law who would be 93 saved every tie he ever owned! You never know, I might have just have what you need.I appreciate you for taking the time to read the listing and I hope you find exactly what you are looking for.
