Amboy Works, N.J. Bird Design Leaded Lamp
22 in. high, 17-in. diameter shade. A rare lampshade depicting a bird with a red striated glass belly and head. Its outstretched brown wings set on an equally rare knot base in original patina. Rippled green glass forms the leaves; the branch is tan. A piece of glass used for the bird's eye stands out for a realistic touch.
