In America, the beginning of the 20th century marked a period of exhilarating growth, a story that is captured in The Handel Lamps Book by John Fontaine. The first powered flight had been achieved. The nation's railroads had reached most areas of the country, allowing manufacturers greater access to the big cities. The automobile had become a popular mode of transportation and the use of electricity had become increasingly more common in businesses and private homes. The rural isolation of the previous century had ended. In this atmosphere of prosperity and optimism, The Handel Company of Meriden, Connecticut grew and flourished. Philip Handel's vision for the company was to combine individual hand craftsmanship with creative accomplishment. His goal was to design and produce objects of beauty whose aesthetic appeal and usefulness would last for many years. Could he ever have imagined that his vision would be realized, perhaps beyond his expectations, as we are about to enter a new millennium. This book offers us a unique opportunity to admire many of the lamps and wares created by The Handel Company and, by so doing, perpetuate its unparalleled legacy of creativity and excellence. The Handel Lamps Book, a 9" x 12" hardcover volume, includes over 500 color pictures, original Handel sales catalogs, portfolios and advertisements and a comprehensive chronological history of the company.
