This is one of the nicest late 1880s early 1900s newel post lights we have ever had. It's tall one standing 27" tall and would have originally been on a grand staircase due to its size. Love the cast decorative urn and matching reeded base and bottom. The shade is a rare opal swirl and is in excellent condition. The light is presently set up as a table lamp but can be converted back to newel post light.
