EARLY 20TH CENTURY CARAMEL & AQUAMARINE SIGNED RAINAUD SLAG GLASS LAMP JAPANESE GARDEN SCENE. Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques.
We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients. With our highest compliments and honor we're proud to offer for sale this magnificent early 20th century signed Rainaud 6 panel slag glass lamp with fire gilt floral Art Nouveau base and Japanese garden scene shade.
Rainaud lamps were made in Meriden Connecticut, alongside others such as Handel, Bradley & Hubbard, and Miller. The United states wasn't fully electrified until the 1930's. Superseding this time electric lamps & lighting were reserved for the wealthier families. Lamp makers recognized this and began making lesser toned down versions everyday people could afford.
This is the reason why every Handel isn't worth 5k. This lamp is much nicer than any Rainaud we've seen on the market.
Once the company moved towards more mass produced lamps they started branding them "RAINAUD". This lamp is signed under the base with a stylized "R" we believe to be one of his earliest marks. The base is fire gilt in a process that affixes a small amount of gold to the metal giving it it's luster.
The lamp has an overall faux bamboo ornamentation with lilly flower and exotic vegetation. The shade depicts a tranquil Japanese garden scene with cranes, arbor, and a footbridge over water. Caramel or amber glass are the most frequently used shade in lamp making. Miller put it simply, It's the easiest on the eye and best for reading.The 6 caramel slag glass panels make up the sky with 6 lovely aquamarine sunset panels for the water. There's an extensive use of embossed metals & filigree to create a wonderful Japanese garden scene. The lamp is 25" tall with a diameter of 17.5" at the shade.
