Brass pendant by the Philip Handel Lighting Co. with gorgeous rainbow swirled slag glass and decorative canopy.

Boasting an illustrious lifespan of nearly half a century, the Handel Lamp Company was one of the early 20th century's premier lighting companies. They were best known for their reverse-painted lamp shades, which were produced from 1906 until the 1920s, when Art Nouveau began to wane in popularity. These highly collectible pieces were marketed to upper-middle class families, and offered interchangeable shades and bases to suit the owner's preferences. Unfortunately, the company closed in 1936, two decades after the death of Philip Handel. Today their lamps still command impressive prices at auction, in recognition of the highest quality craftsmanship that went into their creation.
