Shade 24" wide, Height to top of finial about 29" lacing design around edge with inset red jewels. The lamp is very heavy, I can't pick up to dust under it. I was guessing brass but read more about bronze. Double peacocks, bubbled blown glass in center of body of lamp between birds. Blue glass light switch at base surrounded by leaf pattern.
Good morning, Debra,
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
This is the nicest Quoizel lamp I've ever seen. Most Quoizel lamps bring around $100 at auction these days but the shaping of the shade and the presence of peacocks on the base are quite nice so this is worth a higher estimate. I'm hesitant to over-estimate it, particularly in this market but if this were placed in an auction with some other art nouveau things, I think it would stand out.
Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
An Art Nouveau style bronze table lamp with leaded glass and bronze shade
Made by Quoizel, early 20th Century
The domed shade with wisteria-variation in swirled segments over a bronze and leaded glass "jeweled' base featuring two peacocks and foliate detailing, electrified.
29 inches overall height; shade 24 inches diameter
PROVENANCE: acquired at the auction of a storage unit
