For 6 months I've been mulling about trying to decide if I can let this lamp go to another home.

I acquired 2 of these at an auction about 15 years ago, and neither had any fabric left to their shades. I have a sister-in-law who can make practically anything, and she took them home and made shades for them. I let her keep one, and I kept this one. I have used it pretty steadily up until about 2 years ago, and now it has just been sitting lonely in a closet.

Manufactured by Rose Bros. & Co. Lancaster PA and numbered 125.

It stands 25" tall with an acorn finial. The base is 7" in diameter in a clam shell pattern.

When open the shade is 21" in diameter.

The shade works just like an umbrella-- push it up and it sits on the little metal holder; to close you push that little holder in to release and let it down.

It has its original wiring and it works great. As mentioned earlier, I used this lamp on a regular basis for years with this same cord. The end of the plug-in is not covered though, and it is clearly up to you whether or not to rewire.

These lamps aren't everywhere, and when you find them they usually need a shade and rewiring. I don't know about you, but you could give me until the end of time and I could NEVER make this shade!

After all these years I still haven't quite figured out why you would need your lamp shade to fold down... easy storage, quick getaway, what is your theory?

At any rate, maybe you have just the spot for this oh so cool old lamp!

Due to its size, please contact me for an international shipping quote.

Have a great day aye!
