A large incredible antique all original very very rare mission arts & crafts signed G. Trautmann Raven Wood Chicago hammered copper and leaded slag glass table lamp in excellent condition. This is one of the most beautiful lamps on e-bay and certainly one of the rarest that's ever been on e-bay for that matter. I have never seen any other lamp anything like this one. I believe this lamp is a one of a kind.I don't believe he ever mass produced lamps. I can only find very little about him but have found other examples of his work and have had a few of his lamp bases over the years that weren't signed. Another lamp I did find of his that was signed had a date of 1909 with the signature. If anyone one knows any thing about him please contact me with the information.
This lamp is truly a very finely hand crafted work of art from a master craftsman. He even made his own chain pulls for the socket switches. You rarely see this amount of detail in any lamp that I know of. The original patina is in very good untouched condition with some minor loses as shown. This lamp is extremely dirty being in a storage unit for more than thirty years and could use a very good cleaning that would only enhance the beauty of the original incredible slag glass in this shade and the patina on the copper.
I have left it as found for the new owner to determine how and what to clean there is 100 years of dust and dirt on it. There are no cracks in any of the slag glass panels. I did have to make some very minor repairs to some of the leading by re-soldering it together where it had separated over time and now its good for another 110 years. There are some minor small dents in the shade that will be shadowed by the sheer beauty of this lamp as shown. I have listed this lamp twice so I could post more photos of it.
