Today we are excited to offer for sale a wonderful vintage Mica Lamp Company copper Onion Mission Lamp! This a rare and early example that features the company’s high-end rich and warm patina and very fine construction; recent models of this lamp, some available here on eBay, lack the refinement and richness of finish and construction that this superb model displays. The Mica Lamp Company has been in business since 1991 and is located in Pacoima, California. All Coppersmith lamps and fixtures are locally made. The company’s lamps are authentic in style, materials and craftsmanship. Most models are styles from American Arts & Crafts, Mission Style and Prairie Style. This beautiful lamp is based on a design by Dirk Van Erp, who was the master coppersmith of the American Arts and Crafts Movement. In 1910, at his San Francisco workshop, he discovered the warmth of copper, combined with the magical translucence of crystallized mica mineral. Van Erp originals are highly prized by collectors. The lamp features elements made of solid copper, assembled with hand driven rivits and finished with a rich natural patina. The Mica shade panels are the same natural materials used by the Arts & Crafts master lampmakers. Mineral mica flakes, combined with organic shellac, makes each mica shade unique with its variations of mineral deposit patterns and color tones. The removable lamp shade rests on three copper supports attached to the frame. The lamp features three standards light bulb sockets, each with on/off pull chains. The piece also comes with a 9-ft rayon braid cord. Embossed on the bottom with the Mica Lamp Co Logo and label with serial number CS-730356. Lamp presents beautifully and is in excellent vintage condition, with very minimal display wear/scuffing. There is very minimal wear to the ends of copper shade supports. There is a small scuff on the inner top cap (which is hidden once the shade is in place). Lamp is in working condition. Place this lamp in your living room or den to set the tone for your lighting décor! Add elegant and timeless Arts and Crafts Mission style to any interior with this special masterpiece of design and craftsmanship. Fresh to the market!
