I got this from a garage sale yesterday 7/12/14 for 50 cents. It is metal but I don't know for sure what kind of metal. It may have been brass but was so badly tarnished and the metal was corroded that it was impossible to "polish". So, I took it apart, scrubbed down all the pieces, used Rustoleum Metallic gold spray paint and the result is what you see.
It also looks like it has areas on the center section where you can hang crystals (like those used in a chandalier I think). It is equipped with a new night light in the bottom section where there are holes for the light to shine through. It has a 3 way switch. Turn it once and the night light comes on, turn it again and the top light comes on, turn it a third time and both lights come on.
It's an amazing lamp. I would love to know what the style is and whether or not this is a vintage or antique piece or is a reproduction.
If you know, please let me know.
