VTG Art Deco Nouveau Arts & Craft. All Original Working Wire & Parts. This listing is for the base, only. The art glass shades are available separately. This is a beautiful vintage lamp with a base design that appears to have been inspired by scalloped shells, arranged in an infinite array of expansion. The edges of the raised patterns are just a shade lighter than the surrounding bronze. They give the impression of catching and refracting light to accentuate overlapping scales like those on an eagle’s talon. Beyond its splendid finish and form, I was surprised at the lamp’s wonderful working order. Both sockets perform flawlessly and match the base in color. The re-curved socket arms look straight and feel tightly fit. The column is absent dents and major scratches. The plug and wire look original and in great shape. The base even has a sleeve installed in the wire hole to prevent chafing. I had nothing to do but dust it off and screw in two bulbs. To showcase this lovely lamp, I added a riser, vented vase cap and round finial to mount a desert-themed art glass shade and then a marble-inspired one. This sale will include all the non-glass parts I added. Again, the glass shades are not part of this listing but available separately. This lamp base weighs 3 lbs 8 oz before packing. It measures 20 inches tall, 9 from socket tip to socket tip and 8 across the base. One socket appears to be slightly loose from its shell case and I notice some color loss on both sockets. A magnet attracts the base and the lower ribbed column. A magnet does not attract the top slender column nor the darkened brass riser assembly I added. I acquired this beauty with a handsome hoard of lamps and period parts from established antiquities dealers over the years for my lighting business. This listing is for a genuine artifact of a bygone era that will be a pleasure to welcome into a new home. Please ask all questions. Thank you for viewing my listing.
