Up for consideration is a very rare and fine Hampshire Pottery Tulip Squat Bulbous 1905 Matt Green Glaze lamp base. What a great base, These are very hard to come by and this one has some nice hardware. The Hampshire pot is signed and numbered on the bottom.
The green Matt finish is fantastic. There are no chips or lose to the finish.
On the bottom you see where there are minor cracks where the bottom feet are. These are very shallow and are caused by the firing process they are not damage. I took a picture of the inside of the pot to show there are no cracks inside. The pot is 6 tall and about 11 1/2 in Diameter.
The hardware cluster ball riser and wheel are bronze. The upright is brass along with the oil font. The three sockets are the early version 250v Hubbell screw cap and have there original interiors and insulators with Acorn pulls. The base has been wired with brown rayon cloth covered wire and old plug.Its been tested and all sockets pull smooth and work great. The base is around 19 tall. The wheel is for a 4.25 aperture shade opening. I took a lot of pictures which is part of the description. They also show measurements also.
