“A little bit of light dispels a lot of darkness!” – Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi. And it’s just a PLUS when you find a light as incredible as this antique Victorian black & gilt floor lamp!! It is comprised of a rather large scale round tapered wood shaft that has been lacquered black with a molded plaster or gesso hexagon base and a rather inverted trefoil plaster gesso capital. Both have been restored and freshly touched up over old chips in the plaster which add a certain charm. Three small screw-eyes under the three arms of the capital, where tassels or crystals would have originally hung, hold large contemporary teardrop pendants which we have added for fun. All of this is topped by the magnificent and monumental off-white silk-like lamp shade, which is the original shade form that has been recovered. We think this shade is somewhat Asian as well as Victorian in style and utterly phenomenal. So, if you are looking for a show stopping floor lamp. You have found it! We absolutely love it! We are calling it Victorian, but it borders on Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and a bit Beaux Arts. And we have added little touches that make it rather Hollywood Regency. Its clean, straight lines and bold presentation will be wonderful in any room that needs a touch of style, flair, and flawless ambience. So, you can pick your style and you can pick where you choose to use it…. just be sure you pick this marvelous lamp…. Make it YOURS!!!!

Large Antique Victorian Black & Gilt Floor Lamp by Max Ray with Handmade Shade & Teardrop Pendants
Gorgeous large antique Victorian floor lamp by Max Ray comprised of black wood shaft and gilt plaster gesso base and capital with handmade silk-like shade and contemporary teardrop pendants. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that this is vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear even if it has been refinished or restored. Specifically, there were some chips in the plaster that have been restored and re-gilded. The shade is the original shape, but the form was recovered several years ago. We have added contemporary teardrop glass pendants and a new but lovely finial. Please see photos, zoom in for details, and long description as they are part of the condition report. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, Late 19th to Early 20th century.
