More details about this item

This sale is for an Art Deco/ Egyptian Revival style lamp base made by Moe-Bridges of Milwaukee, Wisconsin about 1924. The Frankart look lamp is 22 3/4" tall and is substantial enough at 13 pounds to support slag, leaded or reverse painted shades. The pipe, socket shrouds and shade support are factory black finished brass. The black finished base seems too hard for lead but call the rest of the lamp that and if it is something much better you got that much more of a deal!  The sockets and pulls are original. The sockets feel "right" when pulled but they have not been tested. There is no finial or heat cap. The lamp needs wiring and a new black finish. The photo makes the lamp look horrendous and requiring restore when in reality, in person, the base , with a shade, would look tolerable needing nothing. It is fully and correctly marked "MOE - BRIDGES" Milwakee". Insured U.P.S. shipping is included to the continental U.S.A. with the price of this lamp. Overseas or P.O. box shipping via insured U.S.P.S. will be on a case by case basis but reasonable none-the-less. Do ask before committing to purchase in order to avoid surprises here. I only take checks or money orders in payment with time for funds to clear my bank before shipping. There are no returns unless there are major errors in description. No returns without insurance. Please ask all the questions that you have. I am not an expert here but I am responsive. E-mails will be sent on receipt of funds, clearing of funds and shipping with tracking #.
