Dating to the early 1930's, this highly stylized lamp was made by the A. Rehberger metal craft products date back to the 1910's and included trophies, paperweights and other novelty metalware in addition to lamps. This lamp is particularly noteworthy and the only example I have come across in three decades of collecting and restoring vintage lighting.

This lamp is extremely well crafted and is quite substantial. The stylized sprites are strikingly similar to those by Frankart of the same period. Additionally, the finish of the base appears to be silverplate based on its tarnish. This item comes from my personal collection. This lamp has been restored and refurbished and is ready for contemporary use.

The brushed aluminum shade is original and in very good overall condition. The metal base, which I believe to be silver plate, has been hand cleaned and polished.

The stepped black base retains its original finish. The original porcelain push switch socket interior has been retained and bulb contacts have been cleaned and polished. Wiring has been replaced with new period reproduction fabric covered cord and appointed with a vintage plug and new insulator. This lamp accepts a standard medium Edison light bulb (not included).

Dimensions are as follows: Height to top of finial: 21" Height to top of bulb socket: 13-1/2" Figural Sprites: 5" High Base: 6" Diameter Shade: 14" Bottom X 5-1/2" Top X 9-1/2" Side (8-1/2" High) NOTED FLAWS: - The original black enamel finish of the lower base shows some wear/chipping; - The aluminum shade has a few scattered small darker spots of superficial oxidation; - The shade louver edges are slightly distorted in places; - The shade is slightly distorted at the very top where it received pressure from the inner ribs; The final two photos provided show close views of flaws noted above. General and critical photos have been provided and are a part of the description for this offering.
