When you come across a vintage lamp with such wonderful detail, you are forced to save it, which of course prompted this Victorian Romance project.
The original lamp had double pull chain sockets with black and tan marble in it's base, but no other distinguishable color other than the silver/grey metal of the lamp. I refinished it in a subtle bronze, over laid with champagne gold and finished with gold accents to bring out it's detail. The Rosalee shaped lamp shade frame has been lined in white, covered with dusty rose satin, black and gold metallic laces in the larger panels and black beaded organza in the smaller panels. The shade is trimmed in 6" black chainette fringe and 8" hand beaded fringe to match the colors in the lamp and shade. The lamp stands 25" to the top of the lampshade, is 14 1/2" wide and uses two 25watt or less candelabra shaped light bulbs. It is truly
one of may very favorite projects.
