Chromolithograph poster for the Vaudeville comedy farce stage performance by Messetti's Musical Entertainers based on Uncle Tom's Cabin. Marked EMR in the lower right. Great graphics, bright colors and in EX original condition. Circa 1928. Original or very old frame and matting. Slight waviness in the paper under the title, as shown here. Image: 18 1/4 x 26". $325.
A 1920's Icicle stalactite/stalagmite shade on cold-painted cast iron base. Made by Lightolier, with original label on the underside of the cast iron. The frosted and bumpy glass shade is 19" tall. The base is 8" in diameter. The glass is perfect and the original paint and the iron base are in EX condition, with original locking set screws. Originally a stalactite ceiling mounted fixture, it has been used as a table lamp, as shown in the picture. There is a center mounting hole in the iron to attach it to the ceiling and a second hole for access to the house wiring. Since it was removed from a ceiling at some point, there is no wiring included with the fixture. To use as a table lamp simply requires mounting a socket and cord in the base. $425
From Wikipedia on the Lightolier lamp company, founded in 1904 and still in business: "In its early years, the company specialized in fancy decorative chandeliers then made a shift to high-end design and architectural in the 1920s."
