This company specialized in making lamps and picture frames imitating Tiffany's "pine needle" pattern, but adopting it in more complex ways when applied to lighting. The quality of the glass is very similar. This is the only example of a "piano-style" lamp I have seen, and it may be unique. The lamp measures 15.5" tall, and the shade is 13" x 13" x 6". The shade extends outward from the base, so the lamp is 13 deep, as the shade is fixed with screws, and the diagonal portion extent outward.
The base is onyx, and was likely added about 10 post production of the lamp to provide better balance due to its weight. The lamp was rewired about 20 years ago. The wiring is sound, the the cord shows minor wear.
Three of the four glass panels show single tight heat-related "age" cracks. This is mostly hidden by the filigree, but with one panel it is more obvious (as depicted in the photos). The other two are obscured. I have pictured all 4 panels from the exterior, and the last three photos show the cracks from the interior.The green (verdigris) finish on the lamp base shows even wear throughout, with a pleasing appearance. The filigree is complete, and undamaged, and the lamp is in excellent working order. Although the shade is "fixed", it can be removed by taking out a single screw. The shade required modest placement, with a small tab which centers in-between on of the ribs. It may seem awkward, until everything is in place, but this is "as constructed, " very stable when in place, and could be a unique item from this highly collected maker.
