Antique leaded glass table lamp, with Wilkinson Company shade. Shade, base and heat cap are as we acquired them with the lamp. Elmer Wilkinson incorporated his business in 1907, and was only in business 6 years, when in 1915 it filed for bankruptcy.
The vibrant colored Art glass lamp shade is 19" in diameter, 7 ¼" tall. The shade has 324 pieces of leaded glass, all original and the glass is tight. There has been no replacement or repairs to the glass, it is 100% original. Four of the smaller pieces of glass have hairline heat cracks. This occurs when too high of a wattage bulbs are used. The pattern is stylized irises and leaves; colors are emerald and pale green, yellow background with streaks of honey, red and rosy red flowers. The base of the shade is scalloped edged. We have seen this exact lamp, Shade and base on two occasions that were advertised as Wilkinson. I am confident that the shade is original to the base. The base is Marked Handel, on the foot and also on the base plate, refer to photos. We think this was done to fool a novice buyer that they were buying and expensive Handel Table Lamp.
The lamp is large and heavy; the base is 7 1/2" square, elevated, and retains it's original verde finish. Wilkinson Lamp Company was known for it exquisitely designed base and construction details. The shade patterns were similar to Tiffany and Duffner & Kimberly. Wilkinson Lamps were most often not signed, occasionally a base but not shades.
The heat cap and locking mechanism are tight. Finial is correct. The lamp has three light sockets with original and very important acorn pull chains. The lamp has been rewired with cloth wrap cord and a Bakelite plug, which is how it was originally done. Overall standing height is 21". This is a very heavy lamp and will be packed and shipped insured properly to ensure its safe arrival.
