RARE Victorian Early Electric Articulated Swivel-Arm clamp-on lamp. I have done much research, but was not able to conclusively identify the maker of this remarkable lamp. Clearly the design indicates that it dates from the late 19th century, and it was also obviously an electric lamp (an early model) - never a gas lamp - but beyond that I don't know.
Could have been a medical or dental lamp, or perhaps simply for the parlor of an affluent and forward-looking early adopter of electricity. Very well made, with original worn fire-gilt finish and patina intact.Socket was replaced at some point, since the one on it now is a slightly later model (1905-ish, I believe). Comes with a fine ruffled'French-etched' shade, replete with botanicals and cherubim. Shade has slight roughness at the fitter (typical of the era), and one very small'flea' bite on the ruffled edge, almost impossible to see and photograph, but I did take a photo of it.
Rewired with cotton-jacketed cord, there is approx 5' of running cord from the clamp end. Please use the close-up feature to fully examine the details and condition of this vintage item. 26 overall full length w/ shade. Clamp will accommodate from 5/8" to 1 5/8".
