|Gorham Table Lamp
Several knowledgeable collectors and authorities have looked at the lamp and identify the base as being Gorham without any doubt. All also felt that the shade had Gorham tendencies. This is a massive lamp measuring 24" in height with the shade measuring 19" across and 8" deep. The lamp begins with a leaded shade that is the epitome of art nouveau. The upper panels are a nice soft green geometric with the large banded border being comprised of glass in hues of cardinal red, green, rum and even some pinks and oranges in the geometric pattern that goes around the art nouveau floral design. The condition would be considered very good to excellent. The shade is supported by an exceptional 3 socket base that carries a very nice patina finish, three sockets and acorn pull chains. The base looks like it is a form of twisted tree trunk.
