Gorham Table Lamp

775

Here is a nice Gorham table lamp. Really outstanding high quality glass with the "cats paw" textured glass that really performs nicely. Great color coordination that Gorham is known for. The shade measures 14" diameter.
The base is bronze with applied "very rare" vines and leaves ascending. Stands 20" high, has the typical hardware for Gorham and the 1 3/9" aperture which is exclusive to Gorhan. Low price.

The Gorham Mfg. Co. stands out as the only firm to
outdo Tiffany in the ostentation of their work. Perhaps because they were
already accomplished in bronze and silver work, they added a leaded shade studio
in 1905. This impressive colonial model is one of their most elaborate
creations. The shade is made up of over 3000 individual pieces of glass, far
surpassing anything Tiffany attempted at a comparable scale. (28 inches high by
22 inches in diameter)
