They are inlaid with peppercorns, leaves and hand-cut dragonfly silhouettes. The floor lamp (right) is approximately 56 inches high and accepts two bulbs of up to 75 watts each. The table lamp (below) is aproximately 26 inches high and accepts two bulbs of up to 60 watts each. The table lamp sells for $1400, the floor lamp for $2200. Contact me for availability.

Stickley Table Lamp 



Early Gus.
Originals of Gustav Stickley's Number 501 lamp (often called the Compass Lamp because of its resemblance to Stickley's bentwood compass logo) are rare and bring thousands of dollars at auction. I build these reproductions in mahogany, cherry and the more traditional quartered white oak in dark Mission brown . The lamps can be had with either of the shades shown on this page.

501 Compass Lamp in Oak 

The photo above shows what might be called the standard version of the Compass Lamp, that is, one in dark oak and fitted with a ribbed, amber shade that approximates the size and shape of the original shade. (Stickley gave the lamp a lovely silk and wicker shade that we would consider too much of a fire hazard today.)
On the left below is the lamp in cherry while on the right is one in mahogany. In between is another oak version, this one with a fluted, Deco-inspired shade.

The Compass Lamp stands 16 inches tall and has a footprint measuring approximately 8 by 8 inches. It accepts bulbs of up to 40 watts. The hardware is of chemically patinated solid brass, and the cord, in vintage style, is sheathed in brown rayon. These lamps are frequently in stock. Prices: $450 with shade, $420 without shade. Free shipping.

The new Liberty Lamp from S.D. Murphy Woodworking




The new Liberty Lamp








LibertyLamp with amber shade Liberty Lamp with Frosted Shade

This version of the Compass Lamp was inspired by the squat proportions of several “Liberty Bell Lamps” made in the early twentieth century. I shortened the lamp so that it stands approximately 13 inches high and fitted it with square hardware and a square shade in either amber or frosted glass. The Liberty Lamp with a frosted shade is $470. The Lamp with an amber shade is $500. Contact me for availability and ordering information.



 

The New Barion Table Lamp  




The Barion Table Lamp

It's a gem.

I've topped a Limbert-inspired base with a modified-square, wood-framed shade to produce what I think is a really beautiful table lamp. It stands 24 inches tall, has a base of 10 by 10 inches, and accepts two bulbs of up to 40 watts each. Shown here with a hand-crafted, inlaid shade from Sue Johnson Custom Lamps in Berkeley, California. $1425 with inlaid mica shade, $1300 with plain mica.
