Emeralite Banker's Desk Lamp

A very collectable piece, circa 1920

This lamp has been in our collection for decades, but the restoration always seemed too daunting - as it necessitated elaborate repairs. Alas, a Emeralite can't go ignored forever.

These Emeralite lamps seem to always generate market interest though, perhaps there is something that never goes out of style about a warm emerald green banker's lamp by which to ponder your calculations by.

This craft horse sculpture was broken in several pieces.

We made several repairs, copper plated, and added some warmth to the aestetic with a Tiffany'esque patina.

Some things never change - or change very little.

From the 1920's till present day - when it comes to metal polishing and plating the craft / art is still very much the same. Quality means work thats hot, loud, dirty, and dangerous with painstaking attention to detail... and there is no short cut magic spray or dip way to do it.

Metal finishers are a rare breed, and it's not a glamorous life... but there is a certain satisfaction that comes from true, pure, and direct work.
