Duffner and Kimberly Water Lily Table Lamp
From an Ebay auction by Howard Booher
The lamp measures 25" tall and 20" in diameter. The lamp has also been authenticated by Paul Crist as a Duffner & Kimberly lamp. The background "water" glass is aqua blue and the wavy leading simulates water. The lily pads are varying colors of green, blue and white. The flowers are mainly pink with red and rainbow glass mixed in. The patina is an original red/brown with some green. The base is solid bronze with all original Duffner & Kimberly hardware. The patina is brown/green. The casting work in base is extremely detailed and the hand chasing really finishes the base off. There are 4 Hubbell sockets with acorn pulls. The lamp is dated pre-1920.
