FEDERAL GLASS FROSTED HORSE HEAD PRODUCTION ART DECO NIGHT LIGHT
FEDERAL GLASS COMPANY frosted horse head night light and original base. We have seen this particular combination only a few times. The glass has a few condition issues, two bottom edge chips that are mostly obscured by the base rim that it sits upon as well as a very small flake in the mane of the horse head. The base is made of patinated white metal. Due to age, use and the many years of heat inside the light box, there is some wear, stress and warp to the white metal frame. The original Bakelite style on off bulb switch with the letter P is intact, while the hardware has been rewired. There is one screw missing.

LOETZ AUSFUEHRUNGEN AUSF 226 ART GLASS "SHADE?" CIRCA 1925
LOETZ AUSFUEHRUNGEN AUSF 226 art glass item, possible "shade" circa 1925. This item measures 3 1/2" X 4 5/8" with a 1 3/4" on opening. We purchased this item decades ago from an old, established family estate in Connecticut. When we purchased this item, it was mounted on a period goose neck form lamp base. We still own the lamp base but the original socket is in very rough condition as often occurs with old lamps. The lamp base has what appears to be old, period, and very possibly original mounting hardware as well. There is a small cap that fit over the ground section, which also had at one time a small felt like washer to protect the glass from the metal. On the interior attachment, the goose neck wiring arm goes through the ground opening in the glass, on the end there is threading where a nut/like washer device screws down against the glass on the interior of this item which also had a small disintegrating felt washer. At the end of the threading is a non operational small candle bulb size socket. The original cord has long since turned to broken bits of some sort of cloth covered rubber that encased the wires. This is basically gone at this time. The plug was not a standard US style plug, but a European screw type plug.
With all of this stated, we are not sure of what the origins of this item was intended to be. We have seen this shape but as the upper portion of a compote, yet the size of this item is smaller than that of the known and documented compote in the Ausf 226 glass. This item is smaller in all proportions from the few examples we have seen but we are not positive that this item started life as it is shown to be today. With this made clear we can make no claims to the origins of the shape as a shade or compote but we can guarantee that it is indeed LOETZ Ausf 226. No chips or cracks present.
