Antique French Study Lamp with Original Enamel Shade. Acquired in S W France recently , this authentic antique table lamp is fine quality as well as in completely original condition. It is substantial, well made & heavy.Unusually & more rare it is Nickel plated brass as is the swan neck arm & finial. The arm is adjustable in height on the stem, has a thumb turn knob to secure the shade at the required height, it also rotates & tilts as seen in the photos. The shade is unusual, it's metal, enamelled in white, looks to be original, has a notch to accommodate the stem when the arm is pushed down fully, my thoughts are that this lamp was originally for use in a laboratory perhaps, would have been stored away when not used, hence the need to push the shade down to reduce the overall size for storage.
Base is heavy, it's plated cast iron. Nice original On/off switch integral to the bulb holder - see photos.
Takes a standard B22 bayonet bulb. The base is 14cm (5.5) in diameter. Reply as soon as possible.
