Every Handel lamp is unique in that it is hand painted. The factory produced thousands of lamps, which means they had dozens of workers painting for them. Typically if a shade is signed by an artist, it will read like “Handel #### Initial. Initial.” Some of the more important artists would use their first initial and last name; and some artists simply used a single initial. A far from comprehensive list is seen below. You can click on some of the names to see examples of their signature.
