Very unique slag glass Handel Teroca lamp.
Teroca notes the designed metal overlay on top of the slag glass lamp. This style uses three removable brass arms for the shade to sit on. The lamp had its original cord but the sockets were changed out at some point period to my owning it. There is one panel that has cracked and been repaired and also a small split in the lamp base. It’s a very unique and attractive warm orange color with the lamp turned on. Handel label on base.
Condition: This piece had the original sockets replaced, with bright brass ones, but the wiring appeared to be original and was not in good condition. I replaced the sockets with new ones which are closer to the original patina /” bronze finish” and rewired the lamp with new “vintage” cloth wiring, and a new plug.
(The original sockets were likely of the “Fat Boy” variety)
All 3 shade support arms are in good condition.
The Handel Company was in operation from 1864 to 1936 as their designs succumbed to the new art deco aesthetic,
but few other vintage lamps are as avidly collected today
