Item: For your consideration we are presenting for sale an amazing vintage chalkware table lamp with its original accompanying fiberglass shade. The base is beige, black and gold, with a scroll-like design, and it has two built-in light sockets that accommodate smaller sized bulbs.
The fiberglass shade is absolutely amazing - not really sure how one would define its shape as it is truly unique. It is double tiered - the upper, smaller tier is black in color with random beige fibrous filaments running throughout it, and silver confetti like squares scattered into the mix as well.
The lower, larger tier is beige in color with random gold and black fibrous filaments throughout (see photos). The lamp has its on/off switch located at the socket, and it provides for three-way functionality - either the main bulb can be set to light up, or with a second twist just the two smaller sized bulbs in the base can light up, and lastly with a third twist, all three sockets can light up at the same time. Truly an amazing lamp straight out of the 50's! PLEASE NOTE : We have an identical mirror image matching lamp that we will be listing in a separate listing.
With the fiberglass shade attached, the lamps stands approx. The distance measured from the bottom of the base to the light socket is approx. The chalkware portion of the lamp base measures approx. 15.5" tall x 7.5" wide (measured at the widest point at the base) x 5.5 deep.The two smaller light sockets built into the base are at staggered heights - the lower one being approx. 9 up from the bottom of the base, and the higher one being approx.
13 up from the bottom of the base. The two-tiered fiberglass shade measures approx. 14" tall x 23" wide x 12 deep. Condition: For its age, the lamp is well preserved and in amazing condition.There are no chips, cracks, breaks, repairs, etc. The shade is in great shape - no rips, holes, tears, stains, repairs, burn marks, etc. The lacing appears to be original, and it is intact all the way around. The electrical wiring looks like it was probably replaced at one point in time - it's in great shape with no problems to report - no frays, splits, exposed wires, etc. The lamp is in fully-functioning, working condition. As with all vintage lighting, we'd recommend having a licensed professional have a look at it prior to long-term use.
