Greenalite Banker’s Lamp
Greenalite table lamp with green and white cased shade
S. Robert Schwartz lawyer-library-student-desk lamp with green cased ‘duck bill’ style shade. Nicely restored with twisted red period-style cord as well as a new plug.
Green and white cased shade is in overall very good condition and has the Greenalite sticker on the interior (patent date November 1921); one very small nick on interior rim. Partial acid-etched emblem on left interior of shade (Germany is legible).
Base felt is in good shape and appears to be newer. Age appropriate wear to base including small areas of exterior finish loss (Greenalite #229).
height: 17 3/4″
square base: 6 3/4″ x 6 3/4″
S. Robert Schwartz manufactured a variety of industrial goose-neck lamps and desk lamps in the early 1900’s. Schwartz’s Greenalite lamps are comparable to McFaddin’s Emeralite and Fairies Amronlite/Verdelite lamps.
