Presented on display before you, it's an extremely Rare Royal Co. Antique Arts & Crafts Lamp right here, and not to be mistaken by, mixed up with, or even confused with a similar old lamp company named Royal Art Glass. These 2 old lamp companies have the same word Royal included in their logo name. But They're Not the Same Company.
" Royal Art Glass, first produced lamp products in the teens and 1920's. This really old slag glass lamp shade is not only very strong, very heavy, and very clean, but it's sculpted design and standing presence is absolutely awesome! It's full of vibrant colors that you never really ever get to see too often on old lamps. Especially the "Rare Red Color".That is abundant, and the generously given green color as well, and covered in this gorgeous gold color. These three tremendous colors complement the uniquely designed chrysanthemum flowers and leaves that cover the outer lamp shade and lamp base of this monumental lamp. This lamp shade has been preserved very well over all these years, the original patina is pretty much all still present, and that is what makes this large lamp shade so attractive and so cool. This lamp shade is a wonderful presentation of what a very nice colorful Arts & Crafts Large Lamp Shade should look like. Lamp shade contains 8 Large Slags of antique slag glass.
All slags are different blends of a caramel color collage of sorts, meaning 3 slags seem to be more of a darker caramel color, and 3 other slags seem to be a little lighter caramel color, and especially 2 slags that are currently in place next to each other seem to be a very lighter caramel color blend than the other 6 slags of caramel color slag glass. I believe that a previous owner probably moved or switched the slags of glass around to his or her preference of what shades of caramel they would prefer to look at more due to where they placed, or positioned this lamp in their home at one time. Since I obtained this lamp, I have always left the same slags of glass exactly where they are now. I have never moved them or switched them around. Lamp shade measures 19 Inches across in each direction, and only little speckled black spots here and there on outer sides of slags of glass, which is always common and normal on antique slag glass lamps over 100 years of age.
Now how cool is that? The only other antique lamp company that ever used to put on some of their lamp bases made in USA was the Pairpoint Company. So as far as I know, and knowing that this Rare Royal Co.
Slag Glass Lamp is the only one I have personally ever seen, this lamp shade signed. " Is pretty much the one and only.
Seriously, I've seen thousands of Arts & Crafts Lamps in my long time of collecting and to have an old lamp shade signed "Made In U. Is truly a rarity indeed. Now on to the lamp base. This Arts & Crafts Lamp Base is straight up spectacular, Seriously!
And that is no exaggeration. This uniquely shaped and originally sculpted structure presented before you is truly an awesome Arts & Crafts Gem. Very strong, very heavy, very thick, very decorative, and shaped so cool is this colorful creation of days of old.This lamp base definitely stands its ground, and can hang with the best of them. The patina is in really good original condition, all the original antique colors have been preserved well and have aged beautifully. Wonderful display of chrysanthemum flowers with a "Rare Red Color" scarcely ever seen on old lamps. The most amazing artistic details and designs engulfs the entire lamp base that has such an original sculpted shade design the refuses to be ignored, and continually gets your attention as you can't help but to admire and say WOW! This is a 2 socket lamp base with pull chains, all old of course. Lamp base possesses its Original colorful heat cap and finial. And talk about heavy, this lamp base along with my other Royal Co. Lamp Base, are the 2 heaviest lamp bases I've ever lifted, really strong and very sturdy.
Lamp base is Correctly Signed Royal Co. Located on the underneath bottom of base. Bottom of base has its Original clean patina present because it always had some kind of a wool felt type of covering the whole bottom until I removed it to reveal the original signature on the underneath bottom.
There's a black lined remnant around the underneath bottom rim of base because of that wool felt that was once attached there. Normal antique wear on the lamp base, light sockets, and pull chains due to its 100 plus years of antique age. Good looking period style cloth cord and plug present. Lamp is in good working order.Remember, this is an extremely scarce authentic Royal Co. This is one of those rare lamp companies that almost never surface for sale. I personally owned 2, this one and my other reverse painted glass Royal Co. Lamps for sale, and even for this low price. Try and do some research, and you will soon know what I mean. The new owner is going to love it. Lamp measures about 25 inches from top of finial to bottom of lamp base.
