SOLD 20s Gothic Lamp
One of our exciting finds. This heavy lamp is mesmerizing with its thick green glass laid against its bronze-plated body (probably spelter). Part of the Arts and Craft Movement too, where it looks like commissioned work if you consider its zealous ambition to detail – small interior prongs, detailed open work, irregular metal sections, 4″ finial and ‘vines’ reaching up to its shade… As you look, you find increasing craftsmanship and manic splendor alike. It’s as if the fineness of the shade has become too heavy for its base, so the lamp needs a secure place to sit (no cats or dogs should amble).
Oh well, just look at the shadows cast by this lamp. Insanely aglow with history inseparable from what is now.
Measures 18″ tall (shade is 6″ tall) and 5″ wide (base). Weighs almost 5 pounds.
Circa ’20s, possibly earlier.
