This lamp was made from a heavy brass candlestick, and professionally wired to hold a regular 40 or 60-watt bulb. It’s fitted with the harp and finial to attach the large linen-covered shade. An inline rotary switch on the cord turns it on and off, and it works perfectly.

The conversion to a lamp was made about 60 years ago, and it’s survived nicely with a deep patina and shine. The lamp measures about 33” to the top of the bulb, and 45 1/4” to the top of the shade. The lamp is about 10 1/2” across the base, and the shade measures roughly 17” across at the bottom.

There are some minor nicks around the base, and the various scratches you’d expect after all this time. Some light traces of verdigris or corrosion are visible, if you look closely, along a couple areas near the base.

I'd like a simple in-person cash transaction please, so take a careful look at the photos, and see what you think. And thanks!
