The classic Grueby green lamp base, is crafted by Steve Fredrick, and Cherie Jemsek, of Jemerick Art Pottery. Steve and Cherie have been crafting their beautiful arts & crafts style pottery since the mid 1970s near Woodstock NY, and they are the country's foremost artists of the Grueby Pottery Style which was originally done in Boston Massachusetts around 1900. Each porcelain base is hand thrown on the potter's wheel and then sculpted with repetitive leaf and floral patterns. This particular vase was done after a Grueby/Tiffany lamp base, and shows the classic bean pot style that has become so popular in the arts and crafts world.
The entire lamp height is 19 inches, and width is 21.5 inches. There are no pull chains because this is a 3-way touch lamp operated by simply touching the solid brass acorn finial. There are 4 candelabra bulbs with a max incandescent brightness of 40 watts each. The 8 panel quarter sawn oak lamp shade will accommodate mica or stained glass. The solid quarter sawn oak sub-base under the pottery is 7 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick.
