For sale is a wonderful lamp made by H.G. McFadden & Company of New York, New York. I have what is known as an "Emeralite" bankers or student lamp. The lamp is a desk size as it stands 18" tall when shade is level. The shade is 8 5/8" wide and 5" deep. The foot of the base measures 6 3/4" square.
This table lamp displays a cased green shade in the shape similar to a bread loaf. The calcite white liner on the deep green color shoots of a very subtle light that is a teal green and this is known to help view items with ease over long periods of time. The head or shade can be fully adjusted to one's desired angle by a wing nut on the back of the frame that the shade is mounted to. The base is square and has an embossed Victorian flair and the patina is what I would call antique gold, a gold with brown in it. This was commonly called a banker's or student lamp as these were sold in large quantities to many of these firms and schools.
The lamp base and shade are considered to be in very good to excellent condition. The lamp base has areas of some patina loss but nothing major and a small indent on 1 of its bottom sides. The shade is also in very good condition to excellent condition as there are no cracks or chips. There is some very minor flea bites on the underside flat edge of the shade. This base has been professionally rewired with the brown rayon antique style lamp cord and antique plug. It has been tested and works wonderful.
The base frame carries the "Emeralite" signature emblem which reads "PAT AUG 15 1916" above the name and "No 8734 Type B" beneath that. Under this info is the stamped "H.G. McFadden & Co New York U.S.A. signature. This was known as model number 8734 in the McFadden Emeralite line. The shade is signed with a decal on the lower back side of the shade next to the frame. It reads "EMERALITE No 8734" along with "PAT May 11th 1909 MADE IN U.S.A. The shade was probably made in Czechoslovakia and imported by McFadden.
This lamp was made circa 1909-1916.
This lamp has to be shipped in a rather large box. It has to be double boxed and or Styrofoam walls and floor built to assure safe delivery. I estimated the box to be 16x16x26 and weighing 11 pounds. The shipper company will charge dimensional weight. Realize Ebay also charges sellers 10% commission and Pay Pal charges another 3% cr/card fees on top of the shipping as well. Thus the reason for the high shipping cost.
