Antique Art Deco Slag Glass Lamp-Rare
You are bidding on a stunning antique slag glass lamp(circa 1910). (Couldn't find any marks on the shade or lamp base but this lamp was produced by a high quality maker). The fabulous 16 panel slag glass shade is beautifully colored with bright blues, red, yellow, and green. A special touch is the small red glass squares(16 in total) at the outer edge of the colored panels. The beautiful filigree is well constructed and has a great deco design. The lamp is a lttle over 22" tall while the shade is approx. 21" in diameter and 9" high. The shade is in outstanding condition with no chips or cracks (the 4th photo appears to show a crack in the lower right corner but it's actually a "wave" where two colors meet)....... while the lamp base has only minor age related wear.
The antique lamp base has a very high quality 4 chain pull Hubbell socket cluster with a patent date of 1902. Rarely do we see a 4 socket lamp base. The Hubbell sockets' chains pull so smooth while all wiring has been replaced in the recent past.
We've seen/sold alot of slag glass lamps over the years but never one that has such an art deco/modernist design. Truly, this lamp will be the center of attention in any room.
All questions welcome. We've got both day and night photos to better display the lamp. Layaway ... read more
