Handmade Arts And Crafts Hammered Mixed Metal Lamp. Gorgeous 32" Tall, Lovely:
This is an intensely cool piece! I bought this on several years ago specifically for the Czech (Kralik) art glass vase that was positioned in the cage like body. Once we realized that the vase was completely intact, we took apart the lamp and removed the vase. When we were finished, we were left with this incredibly sculptural piece of metal work that could still be used as a lamp. The lamp is 32inches tallby 9 inches wide at the bottom. The metal has beautiful tiny hammer marks all over it. The lamp is just lovely and it was clearly a labor of love for someone. We have been able to identify brass and copper, although how much copper is in the lamp, I don't know; it may only be a little. There could also be some bronze in the lamp as it is rather heavy. The lamp has a beautiful patina. By the way, the body of the lamp is NOT magnetic, only the bolt heads that attach parts of the lamp were magnetic. There are a few minor electrical issues. The plug has been cut off and the bulb socket needs to be repaired or replaced. There is an on/off switch but we are not sure if this works or not. My husband can do some of these, if not all of the repairs but we have some concerns. For example, the bub socked shares a similar patina as the lamp. Replacing it would ruin the continuity. As I write this, I am thinking that perhaps the pull chains in the bulb socket were removed because the owners only used the on/off switch to use the lamp. Anyway, this can be better dealt with when the lamp is sold. In the meantime, this lamp is just sensational and I hope that there is someone who can use it and love it.
