The origin of the Emeralite Bankers Lamp

The first Emeralite Bankers Lamp was produced in 1909 after being invented by American engineer Harrison D. McFaddin. Until the second world war, these Bankers Lamps featured the characteristic emerald green glass shade. This is actually why the lamp is called the Emeralite, which is a combination of the words emerald and light.

Although the company continued to produce Bankers Lamps after the second world war, they moved away from the green glass shade. Today, the prewar period lamps with the green glass shades are the most popular.

Most bankers lamps have a design featuring a green glass lamp shade, typically fitted to a brass base. However, we offer them in all sorts of colors and variations.

English Decorations, our own Bankers Lamps

The banker’s lamp is an iconic lamp, and a very typical model for English light decoration. This lamp fits perfect on the desk to light you up while working, as the lamp always has done in the old English banks. This lawyer lamp has a distinctive glass shade, often executed in green or black. In addition, the classic bank lamp has a beautiful drawstring, which can switch the lighting on or off.

We also offer desk lamps in Tiffany design, which have their own identity. In any case, the banker’s lamp is indispensable for a wooden desk for example, and still exudes a classic allure of class and style. At English Decorations you will find the highest quality bank lamps in many types of versions and varying models.



The Emeralite green glass shade

The shiny, green glass shades were made using the cased glass technique.
This is when you create a single glass piece by fusing two or more glass layers with different colors. The Emeralite Bankers Lamp glass shade only had two layers where the inner layer was white opal glass, and the outer layer was the colored green glass.

Tiffany desk lamps and Bankers Lamps

In addition to the classic English lawyer lamps, English Decorations also has a large collection of Tiffany lamps. These distinctive lamps have their own style, with a characterizing stained-glass version in the lampshade. The lampshade stands like a crown on the ornate fixture, and these lamps exude elegance, colour and style. The stained glass in the lampshade makes it possible to carry all kinds of different shapes in the design. For example, some Tiffany lamps are designed with very clean lines, while other Tiffany desk lamps show dragonflies and graceful shapes. This is what makes every type of Tiffany lawyer lamp so unique and a great asset to your interior.

The Lawyers Lamp is real Art Deco

The banker's lamp is designed in the typical Art Deco style. This was a graceful and proud style that became extremely popular in Western Europe at the beginning of the 19th century. The green and black colours were the lampshade is issued are therefore typical of this Art Deco style. Nowadays, Art Deco is completely retro, and desk lamps like the bankers lamp are also regularly found in the modern interior. No wonder, Art Deco is a very sophisticated style whose appreciation does not just vanish. This makes the bank lamp ideal for any interior, without getting out of fashion.

Classic Banker’s Lamps of high quality material

The banker’s lamp is made up of the typical brass fixture. This sturdy heavy material makes the lamp very stable.

The banker’s lamp is pre-eminently adjustable. This way you can often adjust the height of the lawyer lamps exactly to your preference, and you can easily rotate the lampshade to let the light fall on your desk at an ideal angle. There is also a handy and typical pull cord attached to the lawyer lamp, so the lighting can be turned on and off with little effort. The high degree of adjustability of the desk lamp makes this model, besides stylish and elegant, also very functional. That is typical of English Decoration: the perfect balance between comfort, functionality and beautiful design.
