A very good quality leaded glass and bronzed metel table lamp. The lampshade very attractively designed with red blossoms against a dense leafy green ground and supported on a naturalistic base designed as a tree trunk. The shade applied with a metal tag signed "HANDEL" and the base marked to the underside "HANDEL, 5339". U.S.A c1910
THE HANDEL COMPANY: Founded in Meriden, Connecticut in 1885, Philip Julius Handel was very much the driving force of the company until his death in 1914. The company produced a large variety of lighting fixtures that fall into two broad categories: leaded, and painted lamps. The present lamp is a very pleasing example of the first category.
