    I don't know much about this style of lamp, other than what I found in artislove's post several years ago. I could only find one other example on the internet. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/65016-amsterdamse-school-lamp-h64cm-w29cm?in=192-activity

    I bought it because I am a fan of Arts and Crafts decor and loved the intricate wood scroll work. I am not sure if it is vintage (1970's) or antique (1930's). It came with a dry-rotted piece of tatting lace (1930's) shading the bulb and yucky plastic cord and push-switch( 1970's).
    The lace appeared to be older than the electrics.

    When it arrived, I decided the lamp needed some TLC. I meticulously sanded all edges, touched up the finish, added amber mica sheet for a shade, twisted cloth cord and an antique bronze socket with a pull chain. I tried to stay true to its origins while re-imagining this lamp as a hybrid American/Amsterdanse Arts and Crafts piece. It is 21" x 12" x 7".

      Hello Pippo. Thank you for your comments. I would love to see a photo of your new lamp! I think this style is not very common.

      I purchased my lamp from the Netherlands and had it shipped to the US. I am glad to know that the switch and cord on my lamp was probably not original.

      Hi MALKEY! Glad to see you on CW! I hope you are doing well!

      Wow! That is an intricate and beautiful lamp. I see now that textiles are an important part of Dutch lamp production. I was worried that using mica (very American) would not be appropriate. I do like that removing the lace shows more of the design of my lamp. Thanks for the link...
