Ed. This example likely comes from the Amboy Works along with other Amboy shades accompanied by this base. The acantus cap is also Amboy Works. Another example has surfaced on a Gorham signed base, suggesting that Amboy may have also made shades for that company. The design is also found in the Chapman trove so likely he was responsible for it.
