Bradley Hubbard Arts Crafts Leaded Slag Glass Mission Handel Era Lamp Nr For Sale
with the economy doing better, the stock market up,and consumer confidence up as well , i thought i would list some of my better lamps that i have been holding on to for the past couple of years. this is one of them.
i have for sale an unbelievable very early bradley and hubbard lamp. this is a great lamp folks and it has size to boot. the shade is a whopping 24 inches wide and the base is 29 1/2 inches tall to the top of the finial. they dont make them much bigger than that folks. so lets start with the shade. it lights up like a million bucks and has a great arts and crafts look to it with the leaves on the shade matching the leaves on the base. the colors used in the shade also lend itself greatly to the arts and crafts feel of the day. speaking of which this is a 1910-1925 bradley and hubbard lamp. i see 5 maybe six tight hairlines cracks in the shade out of the 500-600 pieces of glass used to make this shade. typically a shade this size would have more stress cracks or more damage somewhere somehow but this one is just excellent. all the leading tight and right throughout and the patina very nice as well. there are no pieces of loose glass to speak of at all. now onto the base. it has no damage to speak of. it retains its original harvery hubbell sockets, which are all in fine working order, and also has its matching acorn pulls which all pull very smoothly. the patina on the base all original as well with some very minor losses here or there but as to be expected of a lamp 100 years old. its been recently rewired with proper period style cloth cord and it has no metal fatique nor metal damage anywhere. it is properly signed underneath the weight base plate bradley and hubbard please see photo. i am selling this lamp without reserve and to the highest buyer, unlike the mid to high end sale houses that all have reserves on their stuff and a 15-25% buyers premium as well. none of that going on here so please offer high and offer often and thanks for looking. please check out my other lighting sales as i have some great things up for sale this time around. although i couldn't see a signature on the base for sale in this sale, i can tell you with 100% certainty that this lamp base is guaranteed to be a bradley and hubbard or three times your money back. i know this to be true because i own the same base shown in this photo that has the b&h signature.
i have this lamp pictured next to a handel reverse painted lamp. the handel is 22 inches tall with a 16 inch shade. pretty much an average size typical lamp. this should tell you what a monster this b and h is. alot of bang for the buck so to speak. there is no way in the world i can ship this lamp for 85.00 but i am putting in that shipping amount so as to not turn off potential buyers who dont understand packaging and shipping. i will lose anywhere from 40 to 80.00 on shipping this lamp depending on state and that doesnt include time and material. so please take that into consideration when offerding on this supercool b and h that there is alreadya bargain in place.buyers
please remember that i am selling antiques and that thereshould bea
degree of expectationon your part inknowing that there will be normal
aging and minor imperfections towards an item that is 75 to 100 years
old. chances are if there arent any, its a newer item and
youshouldntwant it anyways. in other words, a minor blemish on some
metalwork belonging to a large shade or a 1/16 by 1/16 of a paint flake
missing, please try and be reasonable. i really dont want to do a refund
because the finial ( typically a 10.00 piece ) isnt perfect on a
2,000.00 lamp. i always describe the important aspects towards condition
reports and sometimes my eye misses what i deem immaterial issues such
as the aforementioned sentence. it seems the more experienced an antique
dealeror buyeris, the more understanding of condition they are. that
being said, if you think your going to be a difficult buyer because you
want perfection in a 100 year old piece, please purchase another
sellers product. has made itvery difficult for sellers in the past
few years yet im a good seller who wants to be fair and all i ask for
is a fair buyer to do business with. thanks for your understanding.
if the winning buyer is from the northeast i would like to try and get this picked up or delivered if possible.

are a few things in life we can’t do without. Food, water, fire,
oxygen, the sun, shelter etc. So when it comes to shelter and necessary
light for it, that’s where I come in. I believe in living simply and
within my means butsurrounded by items of great quality. I would rather
own a great reverse painted lamp or Stickley bookcase than drive a
foreign car that will only depreciate in value and cost me good money
for repairs and maintenance. Or pay $40,000 in property taxes a year on a
7,000 square foot home that I only use 2500 sq. ft.of and the wasteful
utilities that go along with that.
why is it people go out and spend say $500.00 bucks on a pair of lamps
that in ten years will be in a rummage sale with the hopes of getting
$15.00 for the pair. Why not spend $1,000 on a lamp and have something
meaningful, and when you tire of it ten years later, sell it, and get
your money back in its entirety or even make a profit on top of the
investment. Not to mention you got the same usage for that entire time
period? This makes infinitely more financial sense than the other
choice, plus you have a conversation piece in the room and something to
be proud of. Also you have more cultural feeling invested in something
100 years old knowing that it can never be duplicated by modern making
techniques and knowing there a few, if any, like it left for this world
and now it’s yours. You own it. You display it and care for it. It
becomes part of you so to speak versus a throw away item that was
purchased at Raymour and Flanigan, Sears, Macy’s or Walmart.
again that’s where I come in. lighting. Great period lighting when
electricity was still in its infancy. When makers like Bradley and
Hubbard, Handel, Tiffany studios, Pairpoint,and others cared about
quality, appearance, and function. When makers were trying to outdo one
another with this new business boom of electriclighting. When we went
from whale and kerosene oil lamps and gas,to electric. This is when the
best lamps in the world were manufactured and the ones I want to light
my home with when its dark. I can’t control the sun or the amount of
light it provides or when it comes up or goes down, and whether it’s
cloudy or not, but I can control the light in my home when its dark. and
like I said earlier, I want nice rugs, paintings, pottery, furniture,
etc. and I want to see those itemslit by great lighting. It’s what
makes a home more outstanding and livable because without it you see
absolutely nothing. A quality lamp makes or breaks a room. You can have
the best rugs, furniture, paintings, and accessories in the world, but
without great lamps or lighting nobody will ever see it. Buy quality and
you will never regret it.
