Original Tiffany Studios Large Stick Base, Naturally Aged Dore' Patina , 4 Light~~~
For Sale is a bronze table lamp made by Tiffany Studios, New York. This Style is called a "Large Stick" Bronze Lamp Base and it is done in Tiffany's Studios most sought after Naturally aged Acid Etched Dore' (Gold) Patina. This base has a telescoping riser to raise and lower a Fabric or Linenfold shade. I am also offering a Replica riser if you want to use it for a Tiffany Leaded Glass Shade. This Bronze Lamp Base is very large as it stands 29" tall to the top of the finial when riser is full depressed and 31 1/2" when fully extended. The foot has a diameter of 11 1/2".
This Bronze Table lamp displays wonderful and rich dark acid etched Patina. This is one of the most desirable finishes in the Tiffany Patina's. It has nice small snow flakes etched into the metal. The base displays a very nice arts and crafts style of simplicity. It has a slender column with an irregular bottom foot. It is a 2 part casting that sits on 4 feet molded into the bottom platform. The base has 4 lighting sockets that have pull chains. The interiors appear to be all original with the sockets having 2 satellite round pulls and the other 2 having round pulls. It my belief the round pulls were changed at a later date but they are from the same period. Tiffany bought these interior parts and did not make them. Each socket is signed with "Bryant 250 V Pat'd Nov 26 1907 Made in the USA". The finial and riser are original to the base as the riser has the same acid etched patina as the rest of the base has.
This Large Stick Base is considered to be in excellent condition. There are no cracks, nicks or dings to the base or shade. There is a few light round spots in the base and these are pictured. They are not obtrusive as you can see. The base is signed on the underside base plate with the "Tiffany Studios New York" impressed mark above the lamp cord hole with the model number "531" impressed just under the hole. There are also the numbers "12960" lightly scratched to the left side of the hole and more than likely was a special order number. The base has been rewired with gold rayon antique style lamp cord and it still retains its original antique plug. The plug has a small piece out of it and this is pictured as well.
I have shown this shade pictured with a Tiffany Replica 20" Waterlily shade. This is representation only on how you can adapt a leaded glass shade to fit this base. The Auction is for the BASE ONLY. Should the winner bidder request the replica riser needed to adapt the base to accommodate a leaded shade I will include it free of charge. The shade is for sold separately should you want both. This base will accommodate leaded glass shades that are 20-22 inches in diameter. I can change the riser side to make the shade fit appropriately.
This is a quality Original Tiffany Studios Large Bronze Stick Base. The Base is Guaranteed Original and is very early based on the socket markings. I would say this Tiffany Studios lamp base was made, Circa 1907-1909.
