Contemporary Neoclassical 'Obelisk' Table Lamp

About the Item

A handmade steel table lamp in pyramid form – raised on ball feet and set on a square plinth. The design references the French neoclassical aesthetic of the 1930s through late 1940s through features of fluting and tapers. The brass detailing has been lightly antiqued while the main steel body has been oxidized prior to a statuary bronze patination using our unique formula. The whole piece is then sealed with a satin clear finish and waxed. As with all handmade objects, slight variations in the finished surface are to be expected if not sought out. In total, this piece weighs nearly 15lbs and the height of the base measures out at 17" before the stem and harp are attached on top. This lamp is sold without a shade as the designer believes this important detail should be dictated by its specific room placement. The lamp is furnished with an adjustable (10"-14") harp and a dimmable (0-150 Watts) socket to enable further customization.
