Massive "Uniquie" Table Lamp

3,850

I am offering my massive table lamp manufactured by the "Unique Art Glass Metal Co." This beautiful lamp measures a whopping 22" shade x 31" high. Retains its original patina and hardware. Has 4 Perkins sockets with long acorn chain pulls. This lamp is shown on page 42 of the Paul Crist mosaic book. This lamp has it all. Notice the natural organic vines which flow top toward the bottom ringed with colorful flowers in full bloom and green foliage. The colors are strong and well coordinated with great workmanship as one would expect of the Unique Company. Has been rewired for safety. The Unique Company was started in 1889 by George W. Bailey and held many patents and was located at 46 Park Place New York. They had hundreds of artists and employees in two plants in New York. The 3 years from 1905 and 1907 were the high water mark for the company. A period of economic optimism when the public's appetite for expensive lighting was at its peak. The company executed very elaborate shades with the mean sales price of $35. In 1917 the waning depression years, the company went out of business. Here is a chance to own an important piece of American art history. A real bargain price.
