    Information from:
    The Paul Hanson Lighting Company began in the 1920's and as a collectible today as then. Their appeal lies in the quality of the materials- porcelains, high quality wood, marble, bronze and brasses. They were created using molds as well as cast metal in a lost wax process. This process is based on carving a form from wax and burying the wax form in sand. Then the bronze, or other metal, is then poured into the sand and the wax is burnt away with the metal filling the void left, thus making the casting. It is an expensive process reserved for art pieces.
    The most collectible of Paul Hanson lamps are from the Hollywood Regency style and the Chinoiserie styles from the 1940's through 1960's. The style hallmarks include detailed pierced work, Mid-century modern geometric lines, and more traditional styles of retro-fitted porcelain vessel shapes with Asian inspired painting and classical lines in glass or brass.

    Anonymous contribute: Paul Joseph Hanson is my wife's great uncle. He and his brother George Lee Hanson Sr. (my wife's great grandfather) were partners in the "Hanson Lamp and Shade Company", with offices in NYC, NY and Chicago, IL. They were born in Galveston, Galveston, Texas to Joseph George Hanson and Gertrude Genevieve Grisham; they had four sisters, also born in Texas.
    As I remember, Paul attended art school in Chicago, IL. He married Elizabeth Gombas and they had two children (one still living).
    This family line is related to President George Washington's grandfather Joseph Ball and great grandfather William Ball.
