I have viewed the painted areas under magnifying glass and they are very intricate. There are hand laid gold gold enamel motifs surrounding the centrepiece and an unusual single floral design situated at the rear of the vase. The whole design of the lamp is exquisite and resembles the earlier dated designs of the French Sevres aesthetic.The base is robust and displays the vase beautifully, it is made from cast iron that originally would have been gilded and detailed. It carries the acanthus ornamental leaf motif's and scrolls. It rises with a reeded tapered column and attaches by metal pin to the vases base spigot. The top crown is also cast iron with egg and dart segmented design. Bonded onto the font crown is a turned disc of Cuban mahogany from which a brass tapered segmented sconce dish is fixed. A brass extender tube rises to a brass B22 Switched lampholder with shade rings. The lamp is recently wired with brass colour 3 core twisted braided flex and a white 3 amp fused British standard plug. The whole condition of the lamp is very good with only light wear to some gilded enamel work commensurate with it's age. No chips, flea bites, cracks or repairs anywhere on the piece.
The cast iron mounts have been wire brushed and wax polished but may compliment the lamp better if they were both gilded or detailed with paint. Height to top of the lamp holder 520 mm. Base 140 x 140 mm & 80 mm deep.
