L438 FENTON GLASS 1950 COLONIAL AMBER WILD ROSE STUDENT QUIOZEL MARBLE BASE LAMP
We proudly offer this next piece of original vintage Fenton Glass in the form of this stunning Colonial Amber, Wild Rose pattern student lamp, with a reverse thumbprint font produced for the Quoizel Lamp Co of New York City ca. the 1950s. The lovely polished brass Quoizel joiner work, sits atop the signature fine white Italian marble base. See the Quoizel history below.
During the 1940s and 1950s, at the height of Fentonâ¿¿s contract production, numerous custom mold items were produced for other large marketing & import companies, as well as a number of major department stores, and private decorating studios, in an effort to expand their overall sales into new markets. These molds were exclusive to the contracting companies, and showed subtle differences in form and or color from the standard Fenton catalog items. One major exception was a 20 year contract entered into with the Quoizel Lamp Co. ca. 1942. Fenton supplied standard (as well as custom) glass font & shades, which were assembled with brass by Quoizel, and finished in their Italian marble bases. In the case of the decorating studios, most of the pieces were also standard catalog wares ready for customization. The DeVilbiss Co. (Atomizers + miniature lamps ca. 1942) and the L.G. Wright Company tops the list of marketers, with such recognizable Importing names as A & A Sales / Import, Edward Paul, Jay Wilfred, and the Koscherak Bros. At the department store level, lines were developed for and shipped to the likes of Giants, Sebastian Spering Kresge, Macys, Sears Roebuck, and Woolworth!
Founded in 1930 in New York City, Quoizel Lighting began as a small marketing business with a limited product line. Expanding their horizons centered in part, around a contract signed with Fenton Art Glass during WW II, and lasting into the 1960s. The Fenton / Quoizel collaboration resulted in the manufacture of a myriad of student, and boudoir style lamps in virtually 100s of different patterns, and color schemes, with consistent defining features being polished brass joiner work, and their fine finished Italian marble bases. In 1964 Ira Phillips joined the company, and during the next 40 years he led Quoizel through extraordinary growth by expanding the product mix and providing innovative merchandising strategies to retailers. Phillips acquired full ownership in 1986, and in 1996 he relocated Quoizel's corporate headquarters to Charleston, SC, where it now operates from a state-of-the art, 500,000 square-foot facility. Today, Quoizel Lighting remains a privately held, family-owned and operated business offering more than 2,000 items in its full-line catalog. Quoizel Lighting has hundreds employees between 3 locations in South Carolina, New York and China, along with 2 distribution centers. Today, Quoizel Lighting is one of the nation's leading designers and distributors of decorative home lighting, and offers a diverse selection of timeless designs including one of the broadest selections of Tiffany style lighting available.
