WAS Benson Fishing Rod Table Lamp
We are excited to present this beautiful new acquisition to you which was made by the Arts and Crafts designer William Benson .
Named the Fishing Rod Lamp for obvious reasons. The brass arm has a graceful arch and sits above a heavy open heart shaped base.
This piece bears the Benson stamp – see photo.
This lamp came to us incomplete. From my existing spares stock, I have fitted what I believe to be an original Benson gallery although this piece is unstamped.
The shade on this table lamp is an original Stourbridge Walsh vaseline glass shade which is the perfect match for the piece.
An outstanding table lamp for a collector and without doubt an investment piece.
Size 50cm high. Width 30cm. Please note that sizes are approximate.
