A highly decorative late 19th/early20th century Belgian neoclassical-style black slate lamp with dore bronze detail and bronze flame finial. The lamp is pictured with a newer hand-painted gilt and black paper shade as found in a Massachusetts estate.
This fabulous lamp stands 28 3/4" high to top of finial and measures 6" in diameter across the base. The shade measures 20 1/4" in diameter. The lamp appears to have its original fittings and has been newly-wired for USA use. It weighs an impressive 15 pounds! The lamp is in wonderful condition. There are no chips, cracks or restorations. Both slate and dore bronze have acquired a lovely mellow patina. The shade is in very good condition as well and is included in the price. If the buyer chooses not to keep the shade the shipping charges will be adjusted accordingly. The base of the lamp is marked 'Belgium'.
Just a beautiful, pleasing piece!
