Handel Table Lamp


Here for your consideration is a very nice Handel table lamp. Shown here as it shows in the Handel book nearly 90 years ago. Measures 18.5" x 26" high. Has all its correct hardware, rewired and works well. Last pic shows this great lamp as it is displayed in the Handel book. Great artistry and high quality glass and wonderful well coordinated color match as one would expect of the great Handel Lamp Co. Some of the green panels have tight heat lines. Notice the coveted tee pee heat cap / shade support. An important piece of American art glass lamps.

A real bargain at $2750.

Philip Handel joined in partnership with Adolph Eydam in 1885 to form the "Eydam and Handel Company" in Meriden, Connecticut. When this partnership dissolved in 1892, the remaining company was relocated to larger facilities and was thereafter known as "Philip J. Handel" and then as "Handel and Company". "The Handel Company" originally incorporated on June 11, 1903 with Philip J. Handel, Albert Parlow, and Antone Teich as the primary officers. Philip J. Handel married his second wife, Fannie Hirschfield Handel, in 1906, and she became company President upon Philip Handel's death in 1914. She would remarry (Fannie Handel Turner) in 1918 and managerial control of the company soon passed to William F. Handel, Philip's cousin. The immediate post World War I period was one of tremendous growth and profitability for The Handel Company. However, the economic slowdown of the late 1920's and resulting Great Depression had a devastating effect on company fortunes. By 1929, most production had ceased, and manufacturing ended all together in 1936. In Handel's hayday, they produced many types of high quality lamps which are in high demand.
