Is this absolutely stunning 8 panel reverse painted table lamp. This is a rare one..... I was only able to find one example on the net. Although unmarked this is a documented Pittsburgh lamp. This company went bankrupt in 1926.Clearly a transitional piece between the turn of the century Victorian beginnings of "The Age of Light" to swirling floral patterns on the metal trim around glass with fleur des li columned patterns on the base representing the new design of Art Nouveau. It has 8 panels of reverse hand-painted water lilies in bloom with graduating shades of blue to yellow to sunset red. The base and shade are a match with the original finish. Base is very large and heavy and suited to hold the large shade. Original double sockets with ball and chain pulls. The 8 glass panels are reverse painted or painted from underneath and have the "Chipped Ice" texture on the obverse surface.
The paint has been fired on in the manufacturing process at high temperature for lasting durability. The hand-painted panels show subtle differences in the painting and color of blossoms and solitary stalked buds. They are created with textured glass to reflect random patches of light, resembling sunshine thru a morning haze. A magnificent work of art and design!Shade measures 19" across, base is 8" wide, and the lamp stands 21 high. And no separations in metal filigree as is so common with others.
