Pairpoint Hanging Lamp
Here for your consideration is a hanging Pairpoint deco lamp. A nice 16" x 16" size and throws off warm lite. The body of the fixture measures 16" high and retains its original hammered copper hardware including the ceiling canopy. Also has plenty of brass chain which would be adjustable for hanging height preference. Free of any chips or cracks. Rewired for safety.
The Pairpoint manufacturing company was established in 1880 in new Bedford, MA. Producing coffin fittings and metalwork, Pairpoint approached its neighbor, Mt. Washington glassworks, about a possible merger. Combining metalwork and glassware production in 1894, their merger created lamp and lamp accessories including the well known Pairpoint lamps.
The Pairpoint merger:
From circa 1895 to 1930, the newly formed company was best known for their blown glass shades in three types: blown out reversed painted shades, ribbed reverse painted scenic shades, and landscape shades. Cut glass lamps and lamps with metal overlay were also produced by Pairpoint during this period.
