Here is a very nice all original CLASSIQUE LAMP CO. base measures 22.5" high x 8" at the foot. All original sockets, acorn chain pulls, heat cap and all in very good condition.

The Classique Lamp Co. of Chicago was known for their high quality lamps with reverse painted (painted in reverse on the inside) glass shades. Electricity came to homes in the 1900s. In 1920, only 35% of all dwellings had electricity, although the percentage was higher (47%) in cities. Use spread rapidly; a decade later 85% of city residences had electric service.
