For sale is a Victorian or 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 a nice size as it stands 18 3/4" tall and the shade is 13 1/2" wide outside diagonal measurement. It measures 13" in diameter from flat side to flat side. The foot of the base measures 6 7/8" diagonal measurement and 5 7/8" from flat side to flat side.
This table lamp displays a wonderful scenic overlay design of a lake scene with the sky in the background. You can see the lake, trees, shoreline, houses and a sailboat in the overlay. This scene is repeated 8 times on the lamp. There are 16 pieces of flat stained glass in the shade. The top portion is a different color than the bottom. The glass is this lamp is spectacular. The colors "pop" and are bold and beautiful. This glass was commonly used by The Handel Lamp Company also of Meriden, CT. and we call this "Sunset glass". The glass in this lamp depicts some panels at daybreak, some at dusk and some in the middle of the night. As you turn the shade each panel gives you a different feeling.
The table base is made of cast iron and is 6 sided to compliment the shape of the shade. It has the typical signature Bradley & Hubbard 2 light angle arm cluster with long pull chain sockets that are in perfect working order. The lamp base bottom is further decorated with 3 deep green enameled Fleur de Lis styled leaves. This base has been professionally rewired with the black rayon antique style lamp cord and antique plug. It has been tested and works wonderful.
The lamp base and shade are considered to be in very good to excellent condition. The base has areas of some patina loss but nothing major. The shade is in very good condition to excellent as none of the stained glass panels have any cracks. One of the bottom panels has the start of a stress line. It is tight and I picture this. There is very minor overlay loss but nothing too obtrusive. The shade is a little bit tweaked on 1 side and appears that it might have been knocked over at one time. The shade is not signed but the base is. The mark is on the underside bottom in raised relief and reads "B&H 189".
This particular lamp is not a marriage. This shade has always been with this base. This is known as model number 189 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 panel 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.
