Antique candlestick pair table lamps silver plate

ROOMSCAPE
Antique Art Deco candlestick lamps a pair in silver plate by Suckling Ltd, 1920`s ca, English.

This pair of table lamps have been gently cleaned while respecting the antique patina. They are newly rewired, earthed, PAT tested by an electrician and ready to use. Each has the following new components: lamp holder, grey silk cable, push button switch, white plug and ivory colour silk lampshades. These lamps can be used with a dimmer. It is possible to use these lights in other countries with a light bulb suitable to local electricity.

Both table lamps are stamped on the side of the base "S Ld", along with "SILVER PLATED ON COPPER ENGLAND" and a signpost symbol for SUCKLING LTD. This is the 1922 registration by William Suckling in Birmingham which was founded in 1895.

This design combines classical decoration motifs with the Art Deco style.

The slender classical form & elegant proportions make these lamps well sized for the bedside or corridor. They would suit a range of interiors such as Antique, Traditional, Hollywood Regency or Contemporary.

The design consists of a baluster stem of silver plated on copper. This leads to the shoulder & sconce where there is a new lamp holder covered by a cream card candle tube which can be removed. Looking towards the bottom the base is square with an scalloped and stepped edge. The nozzle & shoulder are also square.

Both lamps have a push button switch in one corner of the base. The original buttons have been replaced by new switches of silver & white.

The candlestick vertical surfaces are elegant, simple & undecorated. A band of foliate & small flowers is present on the well, shoulder & nozzle, creating movement & texture. The casting of these bands is superb.

Each lamp is finished with a new clip-on ivory silk lampshade with an ivory fabric trim and lined with ivory coloured fabric.

Underneath each base is padded with new black felt to protect the furniture below.

Each lamp carries 1 standard small screw light bulb (E14) up to 40 Watts. At present they are fitted & photographed with Candle Clear shaped light bulbs of 28 Watts. These are included in the price.

These antique lamps are in good original condition. The frames are sound. The silver plated surfaces overall are in very good condition for their age with no dents. The original antique patina has been preserved. The silver plate has been gently rubbed over the years to expose in a few areas the copper underneath. This adds character & depth.

Additional dimensions:

The total Height with the shades on is: 39.5 cm.

The base alone (without the lampshades) is: Height: 30 cm, Width: 10 cm, Depth: 10 cm.

The lampshade alone is: Height: 12.5 cm, Diameter at the bottom: 15 cm, Diameter at the top: 7 cm.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. For safe transport the bases & lampshades would be wrapped separately in bubble wrap, foam and an outer layer of card. Together these parts would easily fit into a box with loose fill packing nuts, safe for posting with a courier. We ship with reliable couriers (signed for, tracked & insured).

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
