"REMBRANDT" Table Lamp with Mesh Shade
The combination of the "Tapestry Mesh Shade" by the Rembrandt Co. sitting on the bronze clad lamp base made by Galvano Bronze and the Paul Mori & Son company create a wonderful combination. The mesh shades were advertised as "the most decorative, durable and colorful shares ever created". This one in particular is 19″ in Diameter at the base and features the brass embossed frame with the Rembrandt name stamped in the center ring. The soft colors range from olives and tans to creams and rose and are just as vibrant lit or unlit. The shade is perfect. The lamp base bears the label of the P. Mori & Son Company and notes that it was produced using the Galvano Bronze method of galvanizing or electroforming bronze around an intricate base material. Many bookends can be found using this method which was popular from 1915 thru 1930′s. It was an expensive process that died out when the economy changed. Paul Mori was a NYC immigrant that founded his company in 1889 and was the first sizable commercial venture to use the galvanic process. This base features an Egyptian theme incorporating both animals and architectural elements. It has been re-wired with modern wiring. Circa: 1920-30 Size: 28″ Tall x 5.5″ diameter at the base and 19″ diameter for the shade
