This is an exceptionally rare hanging lamp with cranberry hobnail shade and matching font. Most font glass lamps have a darker color for the font but here both pieces of glass look identical in their color tone. The undercarriage is beautifully adorn with a thistle for each side of the harp. The harp is very desirable style as it holds the font from the top, not supporting it from below, letting the font glass hang freely with the harp adorning the sides. Upgraded floral embossed twistys connect the shade band to embossed spreaders, with a floral cast brass balance bar truly accentuate the beauty of this floral style typical with Ansonia.
Our hanging lamps are typically photographed without any prisms, as to not obscure any parts of the lamp being shown. All hanging lamps include a full set of old standard prisms & chimney, otherwise they include the prisms shown. Upgraded prisms may be requested upon availability. The shades shown on the lamp is our best determination for the aesthetic appeal of the lamp, we have inventory on many different shades.
A note about hanging lamps; due to the large amounts of pieces comprising a hanging lamps most lamps didn't come in a "standard" version or with a particular shade, except in the case of matching shade and font glass. All our hanging lamps come with matching components, that is all components were made by the same company and generally match in pattern. There are upgraded components that can be added or changed out on our lamps, i.e. twistys instead of chains. Please contact us for more info about upgrading components.
We strive to do our best at attributing the correct manufacturer with each hanging lamp but that is not always the case with some of the rarer lamps and more obscure companies that produced some of these lamps. Most hanging lamps are attributed to a manufacturer due to a component being identified as produced by a particular manufacturer. Very rarely do any of the original trade catalogs surface to unequivocally tie a lamp to a particular company.
