Art Nouveau Lamp

Great Art Nouveau Lamp produced around 1900-1920. These lamps are getting harder and harder to find. This particular lamp is interesting because it had its original shades included with it. The lamp is most likely a spelter (pot metal) with a bronze finish. The shades are made out of strung glass beads that are most likely from Austria. This is a lamp that should probably be classified as a STASH it because prices are only moderate at this time on good quality nouveau lighting.

I put a value at the show of $700-800 on this lamp due to its excellent condition and the fact that it had the original beaded glass shades. Keep an eye out for these beauties! The prices are low right now and the opportunity to buy a great lamp at a bargain price is there.
