7 is the smallest and hardest to find of the mid period desk lamps, with the green etched shade measuring 7.75 inches long. Made in the mid to late 1920s just into the 1930s, this little lamp has lots of charm. As for condition, the iron base required rewiring (see photos), which I did using brown fabric covered cord and a new replica 1920s plug.There are a few small spots where the original clear lacquer coat as worn off on the face of the circular base. The original flat ground edge of the shade has a feel rough spots that do not affect appearance. Otherwise this lamp has all its original components and was well cared for over the years.
Signed on back of shade bracket as shown. The adjustments for shade angle, etc. The shade is especially attractive! I will gladly do my best to provide you with any needed information, including more photos.
