Here is my latest art deco acquisition. This bronze-finished, machine age lamp was designed by Bert Dickerson for the Faries Manufacturing Company in Decatur, IL, circa 1930's. Bert Dickerson was the designer for nearly all the Faries lamps of this period and was granted various patents for the series which was called the "Guardsman." They all date from the mid to late 30's. This lamp was designed as a desk lamp, and the unique tilted shade design was made to facilitate the changing of the bulb and not to angle the light as is often claimed. The finial is very iconic. I think this lamp would fit perfectly in a Film Noir movie!
