Attributed W.A.S Benson | Arts & Crafts Desk Lamp | England c.1900


A good quality brass desk lamp bearing all the hall marks of a lamp by W.A.S Benson. The lamp is apparently unsigned and could have been original maunfactured in France or for the French market. The lamp is complimented with an original period English opalescent glass lampshade. England or France c.1900

Provenance:  W.A.S Benson produced lighting and sold in France with a shop in Paris. It is is unknown whether lights were maunufactured in France or exported from England. It is also possible that Benson gave liscence to one or more French manufacturers to copy it’s designs to sell directly to the French market.  This lamp bears the clear resemblance and quality to Benson.
