.Antique Art Deco / Nouveau Cast Iron Bridge/Floor Lamp The bridge lamp is shown with a glass shade as a suggestion. The shade is for display and not included with the lamp. - cast iron base and arm - 1-piece steel column - antique "fat boy" brass socket shell with paddle switch - antique brass signed UNO shade holder marked: UNO / PAT. DEC.24.12 (1912) - UNO shade holder with 3 retaining screws to accept a 2+1/4-inch fitter glass shade - measurements: 57+1/2" high, 11+1/4" square base (between widest points) - adjustable 2-way swivel After removing the original paint in poor condition was prepped and has a new custom finish: "patinated" antique gold and clear coated. In essence the finish is new but has the appearance of being a hundred years old. Unless revealed, guests in your home will regard the lamp as having the original finish in good condition. Notice the intricate detail on the base and arm. Often times cast parts of bridge lamps have inferior or rough details and/or excessive and noticeable slag. Comment: Be cautious of antique/vintage lamps or other items offered as an "estate find" or in "as found" condition that have vague descriptions. My opinion is that this is the new trend for passing off "junk". In these cases many sellers do not accurately disclose defects and condition claiming not to be an expert but invite interested persons to ask questions. Be cautious of sellers who rely mainly on photos in lieu of an accurate description especially when photos substandard. Be wary of sellers touting restored lamps that are merely spray painted bright gold. Painting rusty cast iron floor lamps bright gold is not a restoration. Some sellers offer obviously bright gold spray-painted lamps claiming parts are in good condition with no reference to repainting. Often times these lamps are simply spray painted gold or other colors with all parts intact and in some cases painted over rust. Many times cast iron lamps are repainted over old and subsequent coats of paint to make them presentable. Some bright gold-painted lamps are presented as having a gold leaf finish. Occasionally some lamps are spray painted silver presented as a silver leaf finish. I have actually seen some floor lamps with the socket and switch, and the electrical cord painted or containing paint over spray. Photos are of the actual bridge lamp. "Free Shipping" is to any location in the 48 States. Both the bridge arm and base are threaded onto the column and are easily removed. My plan is to send the lamp with the base and arm removed but with the electrical cord in place. All that will be necessary is to thread the arm onto the column, and thread the column unto the base. A flame style chandelier bulb of 60 watts or less is recommended with use of a glass shade. My preference is to use a 25 or 40 watt bulb on bridge lamps. A light bulb is not included. The lamp has a high center of gravity. Recommended placement of the floor lamp is on a hard surface floor or possibly on a very low pile rug placed on a hard surface floor.
