A beautiful and large leaded glass table by Bigelow and Kennard of Boston, c. 1910. In terms of workmanship, quality, and design, Bigelow and Kennard arguably gave Tiffany Studios the greatest competition in the leaded glass lamp arena. The conical shade measures an impressive 22 - 1/4” in diameter. The shade features a playful pinecone banded pattern set against a geometric background. The pinecones are set in streaked glass of orange, brown, pink and purple. The leaves are composed of alternating light and dark shades of green with a cat’s paw mottled texture, seen in many of Bigelow’s finer shades. The leaves and pinecones are arranged between a top and bottom row of geometric tiles of caramel and butterscotch glass. The background consists of a staggered geometric pattern comprised of a wonderful streaky clam broth white. This glass is a staple of Bigelow and Kennard shade, prized for its ability to transmit ideal reading light. The shade is in excellent condition with no missing, loose, or broken glass. There are a small number of scattered and stable heat cracks. The shade is properly signed with two tags, “Bigelow Kennard Boston” and “Bigelow Studios”. The shade sits atop an imposing bronze base by Bigelow and Kennard. The three-socket base retains period correct Paiste sockets with acorn pulls. The base stands 27” to the top of the shade rest. It is finished in a rich, dark brown patina with red overtones. The base is unsigned - as is the case with the vast majority of Bigelow bases - however it is easily attributable to Bigelow and Kennard. It is in excellent condition with very minimal loss to the finish, free of any dents, breaks or visible repairs. The base retains a correct, fenestrated Bigelow and Kennard heat cap.

This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made.
