This model, described as a 'bridge' lamp, was illustrated in an advertisement for the Ferargil Galleries in the December 1923 issue of International Studio. Frederick Newlin Price was the owner of Ferargil Galleries and he may have given this lamp to his sister-in-law, New Hope artist Elizabeth F. Price, from whose estate the lamp came.
