1907 Wilkinson Slag Glass Table Lamp

'This is a fabulous slag glass lamp by Wilkinson. These guys made some of the heaviest and most detailed slag lamps out there, and this one is no exception. Take a look at the workmanship....and the glass!! The six panel shade has a heavy overlay design of wreaths and bows and is fitted with mottled granite backed, amber and green glass.

When lit it gives off a terrific glow. I see no chips or cracks in the glass and all of the filigree is there. The shade measures 18 1/2" in diameter and is 9" deep. It rests on a very nice Wilkinson square footed base, and as displayed measures 26" tall.

The base is actually stamped with the design number "109-2" on the underside, and the base plate even has the "WILKINSON CO. BROOKLYN, NY" stamp on it (as pictured). It has its old and orignal porcelain lined sockets with Bryant labeled shells. It has been wired and is ready to use and enjoy. I am offering this great example of Wilkinson's work.'
