Design/ origin- Antique collectable standard lamp. Rare item in Australia. "The Rembrandt Lamp Company began in 1816 in Baltimore, Maryland. It initially manufactured high-quality gas lamps that have become highly sought after and coveted collectible items over the years. Rembrandt was known for both floor and table gas lamps, which were commonly manufactured out of materials such as brass." Extract from- https://www.reference.com/business-finance/rembrandt-lamp-company-ef2bfeadbe1747b8 This lamp has much age, it is hard to date exactly due to the lamp being imported and the company having a long manufacturing history. It is classical in style, with influence to modernism due to the more simple structure and top fixings. The lamp direction is easily adjustable, with a large adjustment wing-nut near the shade. The glass shade is probably not original, however suits the period well. The base is very decorative, with Lion's feet on each corner. Under the base is stamped with the Rembrandt name and patent number.
Condition- Lamp has been re-wired. Brass has been polished recently. Expect patina and age with this piece. Glass is in great condition.
