For sale is an Victorian an Art Nouveau designed table lamp made by The Bradley & Hubbard Manufacturing Co of Meriden, CT. This lamp is a great size for a desk lamp. The lamp is tall as it stands 22" tall and the shade is 18 1/2" wide outside diagonal measurement. It measures 16 1/8" in diameter from flat side to flat side. The foot has a diameter of 9 1/8" diagonal measurement and 8 5/8" from flat side to flat side.
The table lamp displays a wonderful Victorian Art Nouveau design of a Urn with a flame burning on both the shade's overlay and the raised relief design in the lamp base. The urn is nestled among Art Nouveau style leaves at the bottom of the urn on each side. This design is repeated 8 times in the shade and base. The metal on the overlay and base has a very nice 2 toned brown patina. The base has 4 arms or a spider to support the shade. It still retains its original metal round pull chain lighting socket. It also has a 8 sided lamp weight made out of cast iron to give it added stability. The main color of the shade in the top is a caramel or beige slag glass with the lower section of the shade having an moss avocado green opalescent slag glass. This base has been professionally rewired with the brown rayon antique style lamp cord and antique style plug. It has been tested and works fine.
The lamp base and shade are considered to be in very good to excellent condition. The base has areas of some patina loss and a few dings but nothing major. The shade is very good condition as none of the stained glass panels have any cracks. There is minor overlay loss but nothing to obtrusive. The shade is not signed but the base is. When I rewired the base I discovered the signature impressed into the bottom of the base beneath the weight. It reads "B&H". The weight also has a number 201 in raised relief on the inside of the weight and can only be seen when removed.
This particular lamp is not a marriage. This shade has always been with this base. This is known as model number 201 in The Bradley & Hubbard lamp catalog. Typically when these style of lamps are found today they are marriages as the base and shade don't usually match or the glass has been replaced from 2 panels to 1 long panel. This is not the case with this lamp. This lamp has all of its integrity and would make a great addition to someone who collects panels lamps especially Bradley and Hubbard ones.
This lamp was made circa 1905-1915.
I have many more pictures if you need to see more of the lamp base and shade.
I will pack and ship this lamp in 2 boxes. It will be a large box with Styrofoam sides and bottom floor for the shade. I know I will be charged dimensional weight and I am shipping from the furthest zone here in New Hampshire. I have found my shipping cost to be accurate because of this and the materials we use to pack and ship lamps successfully. Also realize Ebay charges us sellers a 10% commission on shipping charges as well and this is factored in.
