Handel Repair and Restoration
In 1885, Philip J. Handel and Adolph Eydam cofounded the Handel Company and opened a showroom in New York City five years later. Handel soon bought out his partner and started producing lamps under the name “Philip J. Handel.” Over the next decade, the company changed names again to “Handel & Company” before finally settling on “The Handel Company” in 1903.
The Handel Company is best known for its lamps and vases. Handel created three types of vases: acid etched, Teroma and reverse-paint. The most common Handel vases are acid etched and feature clear or yellow glass. Handel’s Teroma vases were ice chipped and then painted with enamel. Most of the Teroma vases feature a nature design. The final line of Handel vases was reverse-painted. The Handel Company officially dissolved in 1941.
In addition to vases, Handel released a line of metal wares including bookends, candlesticks, desk accessories and trays. The Handel mark changed several times over the years. Typically, it included the Handel name followed by a four-digit number related to the design type or the Handel name between two stars.
Even when Handel’s were in production, they were expensive due to their imaginative scenes and excellent craftsmanship.
