Whoa! We love this lamp! We are calling it Beaux Arts, but it borders on Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Victorian. And we have added little touches that make it rather Hollywood Regency. So, you can pick your style….just be sure you pick this marvelous lamp. It has a 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 gilded 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 shade, which is the original shade form that has been recovered. We think this shade is somewhat Victorian or Asian in style and utterly phenomenal. So, if you are looking for a show stopping floor lamp. You have found it! Make it yours.

the details

Gorgeous large Beau Arts floor lamp comprised of black wood shaft and gilt plaster gesso base and capital with handmade silk-like shade and contemporary teardrop pendants. It is in wonderful antique condition. There are some chips in the plaster that have been re-gilded, but we do not feel they detract from the over-all look. 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. Circa early 20th century.
