Here is a brilliantly colored hanging large stained & slag glass leaded lamp that has been converted from gas to electricity. It now accommodates three pull chain bulb fixtures that will easily handle 100 watts each. The variegated hand-blown stained glass has the rich jewel-like quality that only antique glass possesses, partially due to the old pigments but also because each fruit-motif piece is convex, which intensifies the light. In addition to the colored pieces, the honey-cream striations in the slag portions are spectacular. Look carefully at the photos of the interior construction and the un-illuminated shots as well and you'll see why the modern, so-called "Tiffany" reproductions just don't compare.
The condition is exceptional with no damage or repairs. The bronzed leading is tight and strong. It measures 20" diameter and 14" in height and weighs about 20 lbs. Adds a warm, rich aura and major light for a large room which can be regulated from the pull switches.
Due to the size and fragility of this lamp we can only ship Insured Fed Ex ground for $100 anywhere in the continental US.
