Handel Special Base

3,000

As many of you know, I specialize in really special lamps, especially Handel. Here is one of those most rare Handel lamp bases. Every now and then a really special piece comes along, this is it. Described in the Handel books "silvered metal base in the form of a Japanese vase molded with birds and prunus blossoms in low relief, the foot molded to simulate a Chinese carved and pierced hardwood stand." This beauty stands 24" high x 7" wide at the foot. Very few Handel lamp bases were produced and only under special order. This is an all original, museum quality lamp base for the advanced collector. Has been completely rewired for safety, ready to go for another century of service. Even all the hardware are in silver with 3 Hubbell sockets with acorn chain pulls, heat cap, cluster ball riser, all of it in silver and is properly signed Handel.
