A lamp finial is a small decorative element which screws onto the top of a lamp. Typically used for table lamps, where the central post of the lamp has a screw thread on the top. The finial is often used to hold the lamp shade in place and keep it from wobbling. Why not make your lamp more exciting with a decorative lamp finial, or replace your old or missing finials with something more interesting. Tip: Consider the style of the lamp base when choosing a finial so that they might coordinate better.
Fixes to the top of the post, on a table or floor lamp. Usually screwed into place.
