1920 Rare Rembrandt Style British Colonial Bridge Lamp Orig Leopard Canvas Shade:
I continue to be amazed at the lamps i find. This one takes the cake.....found on the gulf coast of florida while on vacation. Unique c1920 floor lamp with numerous exotic style elements. Starting at the top is a great ornate fan-shaped finial and the original leopard print canvas shade. With the lamp off the shade looks patternless....but when lit up it has leopard print red and black markings. Shade is in remarkable condition with only minor strand damage that has pullled through a couple eyelets. It is quite unusual to find even find an original canvas shade! The decorated pole still has a bit of a jungle green finish but it is well worn. Then the base...the base is pure voodoo with expressive native faces, fire-breathing dragons and monkey-faced feet.Some oxidation to the base but what metal exposed to the ocean air doesn't? Overall lamp is reminiscent of British Colonial style.....you could just picture this in Hemingway's house in the Florida Keys. A fantastic and very unusual lamp. Lamp measures 64" tall (w/ finial) and 10" across the base. Shade measures 8" x 10" x 18" and will be shipped separately. Shipping will be $50 east of the Mississippi and $80 west of it.
