This Asian Champlevé bronze floor lamp was originally kerosene and converted to electric. Champlevé is a hand enameling technique that has been around since the 3rd or 2nd century BC. Troughs or cells are carved or cast into the bronze metal base and filled with vitreous enamel. It is then fired until the enamel fuses and it is polished after cooling. The designs in the enamel are representative and symbolic. The detail is exquisite and the enameling is in excellent condition. The lamp stands 60” to just where the socket rod is attached. Notice the original decorative cord pull. The bronze base or frame is also in excellent condition. The lamp and wiring is in excellent working condition. 69"h X 14"w X 14"d, Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1890's.
