For Sale is a bronze table lamp made by Tiffany Studios, New York. This is called a "Red Enameled Art Deco" Table Lamp and it is done in Tiffany's Studios most sought after Red Enameling. This base uses a 7" Art Glass Damascene style art glass shade. The Bronze Lamp Base stands 14 1/4" tall to the top of the turn switch and the bottom of the base is 4 7/8" square. It has a diameter of 7" with the Shade Attached.
This Table Lamp was part of Tiffany's Desk Set Fancy Goods line called "Art Deco". This Enameled Table lamp displays a wonderful and rich naturally aged dark Gold (Dore') Patina. This is one of the most desired finishes in the Tiffany Patina's. The Base displays a square foot with 4 Bun styled Feet an a Red Enameled rectangular border running along the edge. In the corners are a Circle within a circle and there is a lighter shade of enameling inside the relief. Inside of this geometric border and closer to the stem is another border that surrounds the stem with geometric shapes. These are also done in the Red Enamel. The low relief area mirroring this area is accented with Black Enameling. The top of the Lamp Pivots forward and backwards so you can point the light in the direction needed. The Switch is on the top of the Fitter Cap and you have to turn it 2 clicks in order to work. The inside socket appears to be a more recent make but it still retains its original switch and locking ring on the top. The shade is held with an after market Tiffany Style Heat Cap complete with 3 Screws with Ball ends.
The Base is fitted with a 7" Gold Damascene Style Art Glass Shade. The exterior of the shade has wavy bands of Gold Iridescence against a Calcite White body surrounding the entire shade flowing on an angle from the top to the bottom. The brilliant Gold Iridescence with highlights of Fuchsia running across the grain gives this shade that Tiffany Favrile Damascene appearance. The Shade when lit has a wonderful wave pattern effect when held to the light. The entire gold exterior of the shade has an iridescent or Luster Metallic look, yet it is ever so fragile glass. The shade has a wonderful translucent white liner similar to L.C.T. Tiffany's cased interior. When the shade is unlit you can see beautiful hues of Gold's, and Fuchsia in the iridescent finish.
This Red Enameled Art Deco Table Lamp is considered to be in very good conditions and shows normal signs of use. There are no cracks, nicks or dings to the base or shade. There is some white Paint on the column and there is minor enamel loss to 2 of the Red Geometric patterns. These are on the cord or back side of the Base and cannot be seen when displayed. There is also some loss to the black enameling but it is minor. The bottom side of the base shows more wear to the Base than any other part. It is signed on the bottom of the base "Louis C. Tiffany Furnaces, Inc." along with the base number "369". There is also the Tiffany Favrile Logo impressed about the signature mark. There are also the numbers "3212" lightly scratched under the base model number and more than likely was a special order number. The heat cap is of contemporary make but looks just like an original. The base has been rewired with gold rayon antique style lamp cord and it still retains its original antique plug.
The shade is of Contemporary make and is also in excellent condition. There are no cracks, flea nicks, or dings. The Shade is a very nice example. It is thin and similar to the Vintage ones. The Shade is Signed on the inside fitter neck "Lundberg Studios 2013" in a script etched signature.
This is a quality original Tiffany Studios Bronze Enameled Base with a contemporary Art Glass shade. The asking price is quite reasonable and affordable. If the Shade were an original Tiffany Favrile you would be looking at $6000-$8,000 for the entire lamp. Here is your chance to own a similar looking one for less than half of that price.
The Base is Guaranteed Original and is later in the Tiffany Production based on the signature mark. I would say this Tiffany Studios Original Base was made, Circa 1918-1925.
THIS LAMP HAS TO BE SHIPPED IN 2 SEPARATE BOXES!!
