Antique Thackera Circa 1880s Aesthetic Movement Eastlake Converted Oil Newel Post Table Lamp With Honeycomb Font and Geisha and Samurai Shade


        This is the finest Aesthetic movement converted newel post oil lamp we have ever had. Attributed to Thackera, Son's and Company, of Philadelphia,  it was made sometime around the 1882-84. The honeycomb fond and ball are hand hammered and the light features a beautiful faux marble painted base. We mounted it to a granite base for stability but it can be easily removed if you want to put in back on a newel. The lamp has been externally wired and can be converted back to oil if requested. 
          Now on to the shade. What an incredible piece of glass. The acid etched cylinder shade features a samurai and geisha pattern which was extremely rare for the era and at the high point of Anglo Japanese influence. It's all original and in exceptional condition.
