675

Here is a very nice Heintz lamp with mica shade. All in very good condition, rewired and ready to go. Measures 8" at the foot and 25" high with a 17" mica shade. Has a very early HUBBELL socket with acorn chain pull. The silver over bronze section of the lamp is 12" and is signed with number #8627B STERLING ON BRONZE PATENT AUG.27 1912. the patina is wonderful. This lamp throws off that romantic coppery lite.
