Selected Signatures of Handel Artists

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.
