Elegant period cast metal lamp base with striking styling to go perfectly with a leaded slag glass or stained glass lampshade. Authentic period piece, likely dates from 1900 - 1920s. Good hefty size for a large entryway, buffet, side table or library table. Measures 23" tall to top of socket wiring compartment. Main body of base approx. 14" tall, not including central pole that goes to sockets. Base diameter of lamp is is 8.5" wide. Heavy weight piece at approx. 10 pounds before packing.

A magnet does not stick to the body of this piece. I believe it to be "white metal" spelter. Allover original worn and darkened bronzed or copper finish with nice patina, but also some chipping finish loss mainly around the bottom edges. Wonderful design work with scalloped and fluted ridges curving and flairing along the main body. No maker's marks visible.

Appears to have been rewired at some point in the past with non-period sockets and vinyl cord with nonpolarized plug. Missing the top cap of the wiring compartment. Takes standard base lightbulbs. Has not been tested. Excellent candidate to restore with cloth covered wiring and age appropriate style sockets.
