The top of the base has Gold Aurene dripping down across the shoulder trimmed in black Aurene and black enamel. This is mounted on a very unusual Art Glass base. It may have been something that Mr. SIZE: Overall height is about 29 to top of finial.
My research shows this was made somewhere between 1904 - 1936 and as such, does show the kind of wear that would be associated with a piece this old. It does show some small scratches and other blemishes but, in my opinion, nothing too significant. I could not see any chips / cracks or other condition issues. This is the very best description I can provide. Please look carefully at all of the photos provided.They are a large part of my description! (Please refer to the photos). These lamps were originally a special order for Crest Company (a lighting company). You will note that the lamp fittings on this lamp are different from other examples.
I understand that Crest Co. Had many different fittings that were used on these lamps.
Many Carder Steuben vases were also made as lamp bases and some vases were drilled as lamps post-production. I was told that this lamp would have been a special order for Crest and was almost certainly originally made as a lamp. Jansson's granddaughter "Leslie Jansson".
Miss Jansson lived and passed away here in Roswell, NM. This listing is ONLY for the PEGASUS LAMP that is pictured.The lot numbers were #400, #530 & #556. Of course, Arthur Jansson Jr. Was the son of Arthur Jansson Sr. Who was an important "gaffer" mentioned and photographed many times throughout THE book on Steuben Glass.
We will add a couple photos of some of the personal items of Arthur Jansson Jr. These photos will be the last two photos....
Surely these items were personal pieces of Mr. And handed down to Arthur Jr. And then to his daughter Leslie Jansson. Leslie was the only child of Arthur Jr.And daughter Leslie were not in the Steuben Art Glass making business AND these pieces pre-date them anyway. Anyone that wants to look up and verify this information is more than welcome to do so. Though we do not have an official document, I believe it is quite obvious as to the origin of the pieces we will be offering. And other members of his family, were quite important figures in the history of Steuben Glass.
