Antique carved walnut lamp stand with some fine features, in good original condition & dating to around the 1890-1910 period. This lamp stand is working & we just had it re-wired with a gold flex fabric. The shade came with it & I think it suites the lamp. We are not charging extra for the shade, so it's optional. The stand is nicely turned all the way down, with interesting carvings in the middle & fluting at the base. The tripod legs are deeply carved on the tops & the feet are in the form of goat hoofs. This lamp stand is quite spectacular & full of character. Please enlarge the images, especially of the carved legs & feet.

Large pair of antique French gilt bronze seven branch wall sconces in wonderful original condition with all the candle holders in place. It's nice to find examples of these that haven't been drilled & turned into lights. The castings & fine details are very fine quality. The gilding is all original & has naturally aged. I would date this pair to around the 1860-80's, however judging from the quality, they could be older. Please enlarge all the images to appreciate the exceptionally fine details.

Very decorative antique wrought iron rise & fall standard lamp dating from around the 1910-20's period. This lamp has been rewired & we have included the shade with it.

Large antique gilt metal lamp sitting on a marble base. It's in excellent condition & has just been re-wired. This lamp is in the shape of a flagon with beautiful relief decoration all over. I would say it dates to around the 1950's period.

Large antique gilt metal lamp in the form of an embossed flagon with many fine details & sitting on an onyx base with gilt feet. The gilding has a soft gold colour & has been cleaned a bit but still needs some more cleaning done. I like it as it is, because it has a nice original look & is full of character. Please enlarge all the details to see all the fine embossed relief work. We have had this lamp re-wired, so it does work. I would date this lamp to around the 1890-1910 period, however it could have been adapted from something older.

Large antique brass table lamp with beautiful engraving all over, with a very interesting shade which I believe is parchment. The parchment shade is very stylish & has hanging beads on the edges, one of which is missing.

Antique mahogany or walnut floor lamp stand has been rewired, PAT tested & is in good working order. I think the wood is walnut, but it could be a light mahogany. There are gilt metal features all the way up the lamp & the feet are particularly nice with cast claw details. The gilt work has naturally aged & I think it will spoil the over all character of this lamp if one was to clean them. I would date it to around the 1910-20’s period.

Antique French gilt bronze table lamp in the form of a cherub with a lion (I think), mounted on a marble base with more gilt decoration. This is a very attractive small lamp, which still has the old shade, which to be honest is a bit tatty mainly on the inside lining, so might need replacing. It’s also just been re-wired. This lamp has some lovely detailed features & I would say it dates from around the 1890-1910 period.

Very stylish unusual antique lamp stand with elements of copper, brass & steel. It’s in great condition & I would date it to around the 1910-20’s period. This lamp stand has just been re-wired to U.K standards. I don’t think you will see another one like this. It’s Neoclassical in style & the height can be easily adjusted. I believe the height shown below is for when it’s down.

Very decorative large antique French mantle clock encased in onyx, with lots of gilt metal decoration & sitting on gilded feet. On top of the clock section is a very detailed classical gilt metal figure of a woman & a child. This item has also been converted to a lamp & does actually work. The clock itself is not working right now. It came out of a private residence & would probably need a clock repairer to check it over. Having said that, we don't have a key & haven't even tried to wind it up yet, so maybe it will work fine. There is a small hole on both sides of the onyx base, which I have only noticed. Not sure why that's there, but you can see it in the images. The clock face is painted enamel & there are two wind up holes, so I believe there is a chimer. This clock dates to around the 1890 – 1910 period. I'm not sure whether to call it a clock, statue or a lamp.

Antique Victorian mahogany floor lamp in good condition which has just been re-wired. It has a strong looking curved out square base with some interesting decoration & sitting on ogee bracket feet. Above that section is a turned upright carved at the top. I've never seen a standard lamp of this form & style before & I would date it to around the 1890's period.
