    Here I have a 22.5" H cast metal Art Nouveau painted lamp base from the Rainard Co of Meridan, CT. The handled urn post and ivy foot garland are straightforward, but someone added a metal beastie to it. It must be a phoenix, but from what culture? Chinese? Italian? I am going to have my favorite lamp shade lady make a resurrection lamp shade for it, due to the fires that have so greatly impacted my life. https://www.peacockgypsy.com/ Sorry they are so dark, it is very smoky today here in Oregon.
    Thanks for any thoughts! bird3.jpg bird1.jpg bird2.jpg

    Hey DWM:

    Love your lamp base! Very cool. Love the dragon on there as well. Could it be original to the lamp? If I'm not mistaken, I think the lamp company is "Raynaud." Is your signed "Rainard?"

    Please show a picture of the lamp when you get the shade on it!!

    RAINAUD. My bad! I could not find an exact match for the base, despite the number "20". The way the phoenix is attached looks post-market to me, but maybe...??? It should have had a slag glass shade once, according to other examples online.

    Looks like my gothic candle stick.
    No marks, and it's magnetic.

    @Ghopper, looks like it says RAINAUD, but the initial 'R' is a bit weak.....there's a '20' way over to the right side as well.....so maybe the flying dragon WASN'T added????

    There are a lot of Rainaud table lamp images on-line. None have figural embellishments. I'm convinced it's a marriage.
