miraclechicken Posted May 12, 2014 Share Posted May 12, 2014 I have a gorgeous statue lamp that was my Grandfather's. It came from the Worlds Fair in the early 1930's. I wanted to have a go at carving it in miniature. It is hand carved Jelutong, painted in dark brown oil and finished with bronze and gold finger gilding. I had to drill through for the cord. That was a bit trying! I turned the lamp fixture from brass, aged it, then turned and threaded the screw for holding the lamp shade, and of course threaded the hole. Here is the side view detail and the inset shows the lamp lit. I know the screw is crooked, but so is my real one!!!!! p.s. thanks to Elga for telling me about Metalliferous!
