Not too much though as we wanted to keep it's character intact. It does have some very minor dents and marks, but then this is 70 years old.
We then fabricated the top out of recycled copper tubing and brass fittings. The copper has been given a brushed finish and the exposed solder from the fabrication process gives a fantastic look.
All of the exposed copper and brass was then sealed with 3 coats of high quality lacquer. This seals the finish and it wont tarnish in the future. To complete the steampunk look we found a great Union Carbide vintage gauge. The face of this gauge has an awesome crazed patina.This lamp has an reclaimed pine base from a 1950's kitchen table. This has been sanded to give it a smooth finish. It was then waxed with Danish oil which gives a lovely satin finish that really brings out the grain of the wood. This lamp has two antique style light fittings. These were professionally wired with period correct braided 3 core vintage cable. The cable is a generous 1.5 metres long. The lamp has a reproduction Bakelite switch at the rear. This lamp is finished with two stunning 40w Edison filament incandescent bulbs. One is a radio valve shape and the other is a tube bulb. These give a beautiful soft white light with the filament clearly visible when in use. When lit the light looks stunning. The photos really don't do it any justice at all. This is not just a beautiful lamp but a great piece of art that is guaranteed to be a conversation piece for years to come!
