H.G. McFaddin ” Bellova” Gnome Lamps
Here’s another reason I love being in the estate sales business.
What will I find next? How much is it worth? Where is the right buyer or collector for what I have found?
But even better than the above questions, is the beauty of what has been found. The object itself, how it looks. While researching another lamp for a client, I came across a site that shows in wonderful detail just how beautiful these Bellova Gnome lamps by H.G. McFadden can be.
Here’s what I learned about Bellova Lamps.
They were made in 1910 through the 1930’s by a company called H.G. McFadden. The H.G. McFadden Company had two primary types of lamps that they produced. The “Bellova” and “Emeralite.” To say that they made lamps though is a bit misleading. It seems that what they did was design lamp shades which they had produced in Czechoslovakia, which they married to a verity of lamp bases.
Here is fine a example of an Emeralite lamp…
