    I have two matching tall table brass Stiffel lamps for over 50 years now. Over time they turned and darkened in color.

  • Keira

    I have brass Stiffel lamps, two very large (just under 3 feet tall) table lamps and a matching hanging swag. All with a urn swirl style barrel design mid lamp and thick base on table lamps. Beautiful lamps over 30 years old. I have an idea of the value of the lamps but I can’t find these very lamps on any site but would like to.

Consider the Use

Reading lamps need a wider shade to provide plenty of light. 

Consider the Room - What is the color and style of your room? Will the lamp have a starring role or compliment its surroundings?
