This is a Custom Forged Table lamp Hammersmith Studios made some time ago.
It is made of mild steel. with mica lenses. the base was made of one piece of eighth inch steel plate and raised with stakes . it was pierced with chisels and chased design was added on the surface . twist rope border and other ellements were applied with rivets.
The center standard was made from a piece of inch and one quarter mild steel mechanical tube which was upset for the acanthus finial . The acanthus was rough forged then carved with chisels. The shade was made of 16 gauge mild steel sheet. which was pierced with chisels and chamfers from the chisel cuts were filed smooth. the panels are riveted together with twisted rib dividers. http://www.hammersmithstudio.com
