This vintage spindle lamp which was in need of some attention to bring it back to it's original beauty. The lamp has been completely disassembled, cleaned, rewired, resocketed, sanded, painted, oiled, polished, and waxed....as needed. The black specked olive metal, cream columns, and wooden spindles are original, rehabbed, and in good condition. The bottom of the lamp has new felt, and the top has a cream colored brass base finial. I custom made the lampshade to suit this particular lamp and all of the colors match perfectly. The shade emits plenty of white light; the gorgeous linen texture shows so well when the shade is lit. A great vintage lamp next to your favorite reading spot. Please see other sections in my shop for a large selection of handmade lampshades, finials, and lamps with custom shades. All hidden wiring on the shade is coated with enamel paint to ensure longevity.
