Item Condition:This lovely vintage Tiffin Fruit Basket Lamp is a striking early pieces The fruit lamps are not easy to find. The visible part of the lamp is perfect. The colors are vivid. This lamp was made in the late 1920s - early 30s. When lit, this striking lamp gives off a soft glow. The lamp is in GOOD USED CONDITION without cracks, mold damage, or repairs. The enameled shade is in excellent condition, with the exception of a tiny chip or flaw (flea bite) on the edge of the screw in bottom. This does not show, it is so small in fact that we did not notice it when we first checked it. We have attempted to take a good photo of the area. We believe this area was there from the factory, because there appears to be a small amount of the intererior finish that flowed into it. Also, the interior finish paint in the area nearby separated slightly. The lamp is not cracked (we guarantee it). It is just a separation in the finish Again, this does not affect the lamp in any way. (Please check out the closeup photo.)The paint is perfect when the lamp is lit and the paint on the exterior surface is fine. The fired on colors are blended well and are just beautiful. There are no missing areas of paint on the shade. The base is in good shape as well. The cord and socket are original. The lamp has a silk cord and the outer layer of the silk cord is frayed. You may want to replace it, for aesthetic reasons but the lamp is in good working order. This type of lamp needs to be used with a low watt bulb to assure that the shade does not crack. The lamp is beautiful when lit (please see the photos of the lamp when lit). If you decide to purchase this unusual item, you will not be disappointed.

Tiffin Fruit Lamp Lit from the TopTiffin Figural Lamps - The United States glass company of Pittsburgh , PA. made some of the most beautiful lamps from the 1920s and 30s. Typically these lamps are found on black bases.  The shade was made to screw down inside the base. Some of the lamp shades are found decorated with different colors. On occasion a metal lamp base was used instead of the glass base. Figural lamps that were made include a large and small parrot, an owl, a rabbit, lovebirds in the regular size and a miniature size, a colonial lady, an elk, and a fruit basket in two different styles. These lovely lamps are as much fun to collect as they are to use.
