This amazing lamp was inspired by Victorian Age newel post lamps. The gears are modern reclaimed parts, but the shades, holders, and curved arms are century old gas hardware called Welsbach burners. They were the first gas shades that could be burned in the down position, instead of using an open flame. All glass shades are originals. Takes 5 bulbs, and has dimmer switch on cord. Very heavy with delicate parts too.
