Antique Italian Silver Leaf Baroque Candlestand Floor Lamp Italy circa 1875

A handsome antique Italian silver leaf Baroque style carved wooden candle stand floor lamp from Italy circa 1875 now wired as a floor lamp. This bold and attractive floor lamp features the carved details that give this lamp its richly patterned surface. The use of the symmetrically placed scrolls and flourishes seen on all three sides of the base along with the turned shaft that incorporates a variety of motifs are hallmarks of the baroque esthetic. The use of ornate designs achieved with carving and a painted and lacquered surface is exemplified in this floor lamp. The triangular base is set with three realistically rendered paw feet set at each point of the triangle that elevate the entire lamp off the floor. As the triangular base tapers upward each of the three sides feature a scallop shell topped with two stylized flower blossoms while the corners above the paw feet are beautifully shaped scrolls that flow in a curvaceous manner. The top of the triangular base makes a platform from which the shaft rises in a wonderful series of turned designs that move in and out along the entire height. By using a smooth surface interspersed with carved and shaped surfaces an intriguing pattern is created that reflects the light in different ways that create a dramatic effect. Because the original baroque period candle stands burned true candles the artisans who made them were very aware of the way natural light worked within interiors. The goal was to create a air of luxury and sumptuousness in all of the pieces in a room. The lovely aged silvered finish on this lamp shows the passage of time in a very attractive way and it will be a beautiful addition to any design. The lamp has been rewired for American electricity and fitted with a three way socket for the bulb to provide maximum flexibility in room illumination. The round black paper drum shade focuses attention on the candle stand and gives a modern edge to the overall appearance.
