Description

This is an unusual late Victorian – early 20th C lamp showing a water carrier or cherub with a mermaid’s tail holding a pitcher above it’s head, and that supports the lamp holder.

We think this item may have once been a candle holder and possibly one of a pair.  The mythological figure is made in solid brass and he sits on the original marble base that has decorative brass details around the sides.

The lamp measures 28cm in height from the base to the top of the candle tube, and the marble base is 10cm square. It was rewired by a qualified electrician using dark gold flex cable and fitted with an online switch.

We have shown the lamp with a shade that we feel is too big, and would suggest a smaller clip on shade may be sufficient.

We have included postage and packing within the UK mainland in the price, but for other areas please contact us for a quote.
