Bradley Hubbard Leaded Slag Glass Arts Crafts Mission Antique Handel Era Lamp Nr For Sale
i have for sale this very nice bradley and hubbard lamp. this is a pretty large lamp folks as it measures 25 inches tall with the shade being 20 and 1/4 inches wide. the base very heavy and solid and embossed in leaf form in the main part of its body. this is one of my favorite b and h bases for sure. it retains its original bryant sockets and satellite pulls and its recently been rewired with proper period style cloth cord. there is no metal fatique nor damage to report anywhere on the base and the sockets all working nicely as well. it also has a great original greenish patina throughout as well. now onto the shade. it has a great arts and crafts look to it and is in excellent original condition. the leading tight and right throughout with just a couple of age cracks out of all those pieces of glass. nothing to be concerned with as the pieces are not going anywhere for another hundred years. i am selling this lamp without reserve to the highest buyer here on .
please check out my other lighting sales as well as i have some great lamps up for sale now.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.
