From the Handel factory that was originally painted a dark brass finish to match the base. This handsome Handel American Arts and Crafts bronze and copper table lamp. Has seen many years of use. The socket hardware has some paint loss. The shade has been dusted countless times and the bulb has caused repeated heat and then cooling down when turned off resulting in the paint to have lighter and darker areas and some small paint chips that allow the brass to show through. About 4 down from the top of the lamp there are a number of horizontal crease marks on the surface of the lamp that could have happened if the shade had been dropped or maybe quality control at the factory was slack. These side creases have the following lengths: 3/4", 1 1/4", 2 3/4" & 4 1/4". They can be seen on the inside of the shade as well. The interior white paint also has some paint chips that again allow the brass underneath to show through. There is some grime and blemishes on the the surface of the poppies border. All in all the blemishes and wear from years of use care are perfectly charming and authentic. Please look carefully at the measurements of the lamp as it is fairly small.
