Suess Floral Border Leaded Lamp
Suess leaded glass table lamp. It measures 21" in diameter and stands 24" tall. The shade is shown in the original Suess catalog. It starts with an overlapping leaf pattern at the top done in a dark green striated with amber. This leads into a fade from a light green to a dark green at the bottom. The flowers alternate between red and pink as they go around the shade. They are connected with a purple/brown stem and dark leaves. The flower centers are done with a granite yellow. The base is a wonderful bronze example. I've always called it the elongated bump base. The casting and patina are wonderful. It has 3 original matching patinated 2 screw Harvey Hubbell sockets with acorn pull chains. Cap is also original. It has been rewired and is in good working order.
