WAS Benson Arts & Crafts silver plate table

Beautiful adjustable WAS Benson Arts and Crafts silver plated combination pullman table and wall lamp, made circa 1900. The lamp is fitted with its original intact patent Benson ball switch and opalescent glass shade. The lamp measures approximately 31 cm high (as shown in the photographs but can be adjusted to taste). The lamp is stamped ‘BENSON’ twice. The lamp is absolutely complete right down to the little washers under the thumb butterfly nuts. There is a little wear to the plate along the edges and there are a few marks, all consistent with its age. The shade has no chips or cracks. Please see page 151, plate 134 of the excellent book ‘W.A.S. Benson Arts and Crafts Luminary and Pioneer of Modern Design’ edited by Ian Hamerton for a brass and copper version of this lamp. If the lamp is to be used I recommend having it rewired by a qualified electrician. I am happy to ship worldwide. Please email if you have any questions.
