AN ACCURATE INVOICE WILL BE SENT TO YOU NO LATER THAN THE FOLLOWING DAY AFTER THE ITEM HAS ENDED. I WILL PROMPTLY PROVIDE A MORE ACCURATE QUOTE.Arguably one of the finest American leaded glass lamps manufactured by the Unique, Metal, and Art Glass Company, circa 1920. This, the "Oriental Poppy" is in my opinion one of their most organic and natural floral shades, perfectly replicating the poppy as seen in its natural state. The selection of glass, color, and varying textures, was given much thought when selected for the shade. The colors range from pink, red, and crimson red, some having a mottled effect that is generally attributed to Tiffany leaded glass lamps.
The glass is hand rolled, having stippled, undulated and smooth striated effects. It is an 18 shade with irregular border. There are 6-8 fine heatchecks in some of the small panels of glass.
Normal checks resulting from nearly 100 years of age and use. Typical of most any antique leaded glass lamp.The 26 base is perhaps the finest that Unique used on any of their leaded glass lamps. It is the open root tree trunk base and not just any tree trunk base. Do not compare this to the similar in style Chicago Mosaic lamp base.
It is like comparing a Panzer tank to a Yugo. It is noted in Mosaic Shades Volume II, Paul Crist, that these bases were outsourced by Unique to the Goodwin and Kintz Company to be made for them. They were used only for their high end shades.It is a perfect accompaniment to the organic poppy shade. This lamp will become a, if not the, conversation piece in your home or office. Dimly lit, it will create a wonderful ambient glow. You will be hard pressed to find another. CONDITION REPORT: Very good-Excellent having typical wear and signs of use commensurate with age.
