This original oil painting on stretched canvas and stretcher boards measures 15 by 30 inches, not including the split bamboo frame that surrounds it.
It was painted and signed, lower right, by Aubrey Leech.
Aubrey Leech was known as a New York lamp designer of motion lamps in the early 20th century and is specifically associated with the Econolite Jr. models.
These rotating and painted lamps were very popular from 1920 -1960 and even have had a resurgence of collecting interest today.
This original painting is in very good condition with the exception of a few very small scuffs to the canvas, causing a minor amount of paint loss ( easily restoreable).
This painting should be of interest to any serious lamp collector, especially one who collects the type of lamps that Aubrey Leech designed. The fact that the subject of the painting is also a lamp or lantern can be considered an added bonus.
