I obtained this item at an estate sale where the previous owner's heirs were uninterested and unable to take it with them. The only history I could obtain on this piece is that the lamp had been in the previous owner's household every since the now grown children were little. The glass shade was cracked during a incident while moving the lamp somewhere in the 1950's. The previous owner (heir's father) worked at the Smithsonian Museum at that time and brought the lamp in to a colleague who worked there to have it expertly repaired.
Nothing else is known about it other than it made its way down to North Carolina when the previous owner retired and has been here ever since. Claw-Foot Base: 6" wide x 6" wide x 23 High. Glass Shade: 7 3/4" tall, 18" diameter. THE GOOD: Good condition base with 2 working Edison style, downward facing bulbs. Have had best luck with lighting with 2 x 25 watt bulbs.Fantastically painted glass lamp shade brings the art noveau look to any room and will be a conversation starter in any room. 1 Glass lamp shade crack. Please see the last 3 photos for a close up of the repaired crack. The crack makes a chord that goes from one side of the circumference to the other side, without bisecting the center opening hole.
The lamp and base can be positioned so that the crack is facing a wall and not visible unless actively seeking out blemishes. While the damage to the shade is tragic, the repairs were well done and my pricing reflects a good base and good lamp to wide audience who would sincerely enjoy this lamp. 2 One of the two Edison style socket pull chains sticks sporadically. I have been successful with a gentle tug in freeing it up.
The Lamp is priced according to its flaws. This lamp is very near to antique status, has a good, functioning base and is just plain beautiful. This one is priced to move to an adoring fan or a collector who I hope will keep it preserved for many generations to come.
Please take your time with the photos and contact me if you have any questions. This item is located in 28560 area, New Bern, North Carolina, USA. Questions / answers I have been asked so far.
Q Is the lampshade signed??? The clues that that this may be the original lampshade are 1 It was previously broken and the owner had it professionally repaired instead of replacing it. Of the original owner advised that this lamp and shade has always been together since she was a little girl. 3 The glass shade fits perfectly on the signed base.
I asked her a ton of questions and she. Did not have any more information.This was part of her parents estate who are the only ones who would have known more but are not deceased. 4 In my looking around for the history of this lamp, I found 2 other very similar lampshade, landscape designs on artnet dot com.
