This is a beautiful antique lamp - dating to the early 20th century.
The main frame is made of lacquered brass - all nice and golden & shiny. It is decorated with three little daisy type flowers made of copper, a little reminiscent of the WAS Benson - the uprights on the shade frame have attractive barley sugar twists in the center. There are little scrolled feet at the bottom of each uprights.
Above the main lantern is a swirling crown. Each section of the crown is a continuation of the uprights on the lantern itself. The lines are quite whiplash and end with c-scrolls at the top - quite a pretty and delicate decorative device. Where the scrolls meet in the crown section is the fitment where the cable to attach your light bulb goes. It has a ring at the top and through this a large brass S hook attaches. At the other end of the S hook is a very sturdy (original to the lamp) brass chain - the cloth covered cable slinks its way through the chain.
This comes with the original brass ceiling rose fitment with another large sturdy hook where the lamp chain fits into - I am sure you can see all of this in my photographs!
The interior shade section is made of a white opaque glass with subtle sweeping swirls or decorative ripples to the glass. The glass is without chips or damages. The shade can easily be removed for washing or cleaning purposes.
A very attractive antique lamp - would look great in any period room - as although it takes more of the shape of a hall lantern - the delicacy of the metalwork certainly makes it an appropriate embellishment for other rooms. As you can see it is a lovely example.
Dimensions: Height from ceiling rose to base of the lantern section is 38 1/2 inches (97cm). The length of the chain is 21 inches. The height of the lamp section from top of the crown to bottom to the lower feet is 14 1/2 inches. Length of shade is 7 1/2 inches. Diameter of the glass shade is just over 5 inches.
Weight unpacked is approx 1.6 kg - so this would probably limit this to the UK only.
All ready to hang - no work needed to it. Recently re-wired, but please get an electrician to give it a wee check over - should be all fine, all earthed etc. To hang you will need a wooden disk on your ceiling to screw the lantern into - these are easy to get online!
