French Early 20th Century Empire Brass-and-Bronze Brazier Table Lamp
Dimensions: 27″H x 7″Diameter
An early 20th-century French Empire-style brazier, which was used as a portable heater burning hot coals or other fuel for interior warmth. This example was converted to a table lamp in the early-to-mid 20th century. The fuel well is supported by three brass legs with paw feet topped by three brass gryffon supports, holding the bronze bowl, decorated with palm motifs and an artichoke finial. The whole is supported on a concave tri-form bronze plinth base set atop a slightly larger piece of marble of the same shape. The two-light fixture has been wired for US using UL certified parts.
