Handel, Bird Lamp

This Handel lamp is really a beauty.  The colorful birds are painted on a jet black background, so they really pop.  Numbered #7026 and artist signed "Broggi".  Comes with the correct base, but not the original one, as the ring on the shade is gold polychrome and the base is patina.  Fully signed.  Mint condition.

This signed #7043 lamp usually comes with a charcoal grey background. This is only the second time that I've had it with a blue background. The birds on the one side and the butterfly on the other side are very colorful and very well painted. This is a choice Handel lamp. The shade is 18" in diameter and in mint condition. The base is in fair condition with quite a few chips to the polychrome finish.  The sockets are original with acorn pull chains. (#60649)

I don't get many Handel lamps nowadays, but when I do, they're great!  This is a fabulous Black Bird lamp, #7026, artist signed by Broggi, with gorgeous artwork by one of Handel's best artists.  Mint shade and all original base with some chipping (to be expected) to the original polychrome finish. 18" diameter x 24¾" tall. It's a killer lamp at a great price!

Is this lamp killer, or what? I've owned countless Handel lamps over the years so I can say with authority this is one of the best. This lamp comes in a red and a blue version. The blue is rarer and to my taste, prettier. 18" diameter. Signed both shade and base. Mint condition shade. Base with chips to the polychrome finish (which is quite common. The polychrome finish was not as durable as the patina finish. If it bothers you, I have an excellent restorer who can bring it back to new.)

Exquisite Handel lamp, covered with beautiful dogwood flowers and butterflies.  The lamp is not clear or white in the background.  It was just difficult to photograph.  The true color is pastel yellow.  Signed on the ring and the base.  Mint condition with a beautiful patina on the base.

I've owned many Handel pond lily table lamps but this one is one of the best.  It has six branches including two buds.  Each of the flowers has three layers of petals.  It's in fabulous condition with a beautiful patina.  Each shade is signed as well as the base.  You couldn't find a finer example.  (#51235)

This is such a stunning lamp. Handel made it in a red and a blue version. I can't decide which one I like better. 18" diameter. Signed both shade and base. Mint condition shade. Base with slight wear to the original finish, but well within the normal bounds of a lamp that's 100 years old.
