Gorham Floral Trellis Leaded Lamp

19" Diameter. From a private collection.

Ed. Chapman made a strikingly similar, yet not identical trellis shade (see last image). The base on this gorgeous lamp is almost identical to another example featured in Chapman company photos. This makes attribution very sticky as Chapman appeared to originate some designs that ended up being made by Gorham, albeit with modifications. Currently there is no evidence confirming a Chapman / Gorham relationship, but from similarities of certain examples of their work, it was more than coincidental. This extended not only to shade design, but base design also.
