Pair Neoclassical Empire Gilt Bronze Ebonized Column Lamps circa 1890
A pair of antique French Empire style Neoclassical column lamps circa 1890. This pair of Empire lamps are modeled after the ancient Roman monument Trajan's Column seen in Rome, Italy. Napoleon I sought emblems linking him to an Imperial Classical past and often used columns as decorative elements. Each of these lamps retain their original maker's plaque and have been rewired for US electricity. The labels have raised lettering denoting the maker's as Thilorier et Barrachin whose hydrostatic lamps were famous for their efficient use of oil. The lamps are an unusual combination of ebonized wood mounted with gilt bronze. As these were originally oil lamps they have been converted to electricity which makes the contrast between the deep black of the wooden surfaces and the rich gleam of the gold accents quite visible. Trajan's Column is famous not only for its historical connotations but also the use of a square plinth base supporting a circular column with a square top. This Neoclassical style remains an essential element in contemporary interiors.
