American Art Deco Chrome Table Lamp with Integral Photo Frame by Rubal Lighting.


This scarce American Art Deco chrome table lamp features an integral circular photo frame complete with its original convex glass. It is impressed to the underside of the cast iron base liner with the Rubal Lighting wordmark. Rubal was a company more usually known for its novelty cast iron doorstops and bottle openers or for its range of nautically themed decorative objects. This lamp has all its original chrome in excellent condition as is the integral frame with its original convex glass and chrome convex back. It comes complete with a lovely original period photograph (5.5" diameter) that the frame held when we purchased it. (This can of course be easily replaced if desired.) Similarly the harp, socket, finial and Hessian drum shade are all original to the lamp when acquired by Decollect.
