Unusual and ornate antique floor lamp with leaves and horse heads has been hand painted and holds a hand-dyed Midsomer Dragon silk lampshade. The shade is ombré dyed from pale midnight blue to soft warm red. The blue fabric is metallic shot Edwardian silk and the side panels are covered in a very old (early 1800s) hand made lace featuring birds and foliage. However, the stars of this lamp are the incredible embroidered dragons and lilies from an antique United Kingdom (English, Scottish or Welsh) textile. The detail on this is wonderful and this is hard to part with! The shade has antique gold bullion ball fringe and a beaded tassel with Gothic accents that completes the lamp. This is a very special lamp.
Overall height is 68 inches to the top of the finial.
