Antique French Hand Forged Iron Floor Lamp, France circa 1890

A striking five light antique French forged iron (fer forgé) candle stand floor lamp from France circa 1890 now wired for American electricity. This handsome floor lamp is marvelously simple in its shape with a decidedly architectural presence. The circular ring has four equally spaced candle arms raised by a scroll with a circular bobeche (originally used to capture melting wax). The central candle is raised above the outer four by arms by four straight forged iron supports and also has a bobeche. When lighted all five arms cast a lovely glow of light. The central vertical shaft has a double ribbon twist design and stands upon four elevated legs. Please note the way each of the legs flares away from the central shaft for an added dimensional effect. The weight of the forged iron is quite substantial and the unique hand made quality is entirely visible from all directions. This antique French floor lamp has been rewired for American electricity and all five sockets have been fitted for a standard base bulb.
