$1,150.00

What a desk lamp! This is one of the finest early desk lights we have ever had in over 40 years of antique lighting. Was in storage for the past 30 years and originally came from an estate in the Boston area.  Electric lights from this era were very ornate and high end as it was an expensive power source before the turn of the century. This lamp has all the hallmarks of late Victorian design including the acanthus base, rope tubing and reeded center ball. The shade is an incredible example of late victorian glass and is hand blown, crimped and etched with an early Art Nouveau pattern.  Arm is adjustable up and down and we have rewired it with a period fabric wrapped cord.
