Rare Heintz Lamp Base
Only rarely does the opportunity come to possess a Heintz piece of this size and quality. It is bronze with sterling silver overlay motif of tree branches. The lamp is 20 inches in height. The base diameter is 5 inches. The sterling motif reminds me of a budded fruit tree and is shown in the Heintz book It is a double bulb lamp with two chains, to operate each bulb independently. It is fully operational. Each chain has a pretty soft green 1 inch fluted pull. Condition: The lamp is in perfect condition. There are no dings, dents, or scratches. It has a lovely age patina, which is to be expected of a 100 year old bronze and sterling lamp. I have not polished the lamp, and to my knowledge, is all original.
