This Tiffany style lamp doesn't have much of a history as it was purchased a few winters ago from somebody who does repossessions, house clearances and home removals. I picked it up from an industrial warehouse in a very poor state. Took me a good week to clean it to see shade's true colours. The base is covered in brown paint which I don't like much but fear to remove.
It's bronze and very heavy, in fact I can't lift it assembled. My scant research about the base comes to
The base is telescopic potentially reaching 28'', overall measurement of the lamp is 22'' high ( not extended) and the shade is 32'' wide.
The base bottom plate is missing, so I can't tell whether it's authentic, however, local auctioneer mentioned that the base and shade were made at different times and advised to get in touch with a Tiffany lamp specialist, which is still on my 'to do' list.
