Whaley Arts Crafts Leaded Slag Glass Bradley Hubbard Handel Era Antique Lamp Nr For Sale

Whaley Arts Crafts Leaded Slag Glass Bradley Hubbard Handel Era Antique Lamp Nr

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. this lamp is pictured in the paul crist book mosaic shades volume two on page 101 top left hand corner.for sale i have this exceptional period 1910-1920 whaley leaded lamp. this is a very very nice lamp folks and its in great original condition. we will start with the base. it measures 21 and 1/2 inches tall and retains its original wonderful patina throughout. it also has its original harvey hubbell sockets. its been recently rewired with proper period style cloth cord and is in fine working order. the is no metal breaks not fatique to be found and will still be here on this earth 100 years from now when you and i are not.

the shade measures 18 inches wide and is also in fine original condition as well. the coloration in the glass exceptional and the leading strong and solid throughout with no loose pieces of glass anywhere. four to five tight age cracks in totality throughout the shade as to be expected for a lamp 100 years old but nothing that detracts from the overall appearance of the lamp at all. whaley has been pretty hot here on the past six months to a year because its a great maker with a very nice arts and crafts look and feel to them. plus they dont cost 4-6k or morelike the duffner and kimberly's, or suess's, or morgans. this is a very clean and correct lamp by a great maker that did not produce a whole lot of lamps like some of the other makers. i am selling this lamp without reserve to the highest buyer here on . this is unlike most sale houses of today that all have reserves on their items and then you get the honor of paying an additional 15-25% on top of the hammer price for the right to buy their sale item. so bear that in mind when offerding on my items and the savings you are getting by not offerding at the brick and mortar sales. thanks for looking and please check out my other great lighting sales that i am currently running now as well.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.

PleaseCheck out myother items!Some great Bradley Hubbard, Tiffany, Handel, etc. etc.

There 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.

So 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.

So 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.
