Ruby Brass Lamp

From our personal collection.   A wonderful brass lamp with a gorgeous ruby cased glass shade (the interior is white).  The shade has three brass bands on the surface that extend from the outer rim to the fitting.  The base has two “knuckles” (adjustments) that allow the shade and the center post to be set at different angles.  We used it in our house on top of our china closet where the light pointed down over the top to light the interior.  It can also be used in a more traditional table lamp position (see photos of lamp in both positions).  We have had similar bases signed “Emerlite” suggesting this was probably made by that company.   We have never seen this exact form base or color of shade before.  A lovely and rare lamp!

  Circa:   1910.    Dimensions:   16″ H  (from bottom to top of stem).    Condition:   The base has the original lightly polished patina.  Shade is in good condition.    Price:   $775em7em1 em6 em5rl4 rl3 rl2 rl1
