Magnificent Victorian Figural Newel Post Light, A.j Scotte France Beautiful Lady:
For your consideration, a magnificent, large and well detailed figural newel post light from the Victorian era. Measures a stately 27" tall and 18" across, and has very good, untouched original finish and lovely hand crafted foliage. Supporting it's unspoiled originality are four original lily style bulbs that may well have been original to the light, two of which will light, and two that won't. The only issues I can see are two sockets that need some attention, along with a good cleaning and re-wiring. A later push button switch has been installed on the base, and I don't know if there originally was a switch there or not. Overall a splendid example of ornate Victorian lighting that would be a showpiece in any Victorian home or collection. View the pictures carefully for detailed surface condition and expected wear, as this item is surely over 130 years old!
