DONALD DESKEY (1894 - 1989); DESKEY-VOLLMER INC.

Estimate: $8,000 - $10,000

Rare lamp, New York, ca. 1927
Chromed brass, enameled wood, frosted and molded leaded glass, two sockets
Unmarked
11" x 8 1/2" x 5 1/4"
Provenance: Private collection, Pennsylvania
An example of this model is in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Overall fair vintage condition. Heavy losses to chrome plating throughout. Missing one screw to top panel. Slight separation of lamp body from base on one corner. A couple of minor chips to glass panels, about 1/4" each, difficult to see. One leaded glass panel slightly loose. We recommend complete rewiring; no longer in working order.
