This table lamp is a unique combination of brass components, a playful metal work piece. The result is a sweet & masculine treat for a dog lover.
The Art Deco geometric forms offer a complementary background to the brass dogs sculpture.
Looking from the bottom, there is a circular stepped plinth in polished brass. The first step is concave while the second is convex. The result is a `gentle` finish to the comparatively hard brass. In the front there is a quality brass casting with two dogs under which it is stamped `SPANIELS`. Behind the casting of the dogs runs a central column consisting of four brass rods and the electrical cable running in between. These brass rods are joined together at the top and fitted with the lamp holder & cover, both of brass.
Two brass removable rings secure the shade by two white metal ring adaptors to the lamp holder. This lamp is finished with a vintage screw on lampshade of black chenille with ivory, which is of later date.
Underneath the lamp base is padded with new black felt to protect the furniture below.
This lamp carries 1 standard small screw light bulb (E14) up to 40 Watts. At present it is fitted & photographed with Candle Clear shaped light bulbs of 25 Watts. This is included in the price.

ELPEC BRASS LLOYD PASCAL CO HISTORY
Lloyd Pascal & Co, the original company name for ELPEC Brass, was established in Birmingham in 1919. Initial production was fitting for windows, carriages and cabinets as brassfounders, and then specialised in reproduction copper and brassware initially based on Belgian designs. The later trade name was formed from the initials of the two founders and was used mainly on items where the design had been protected by registration as in this case. The company also produced silver plate which was marked `Centurion Silverplate`. The `Elpec` name lapsed in 1972 however the company is still in operation today in Birmingham as `Lloyd Pascal` producing home accessories.
