Visual Description : This large brass and copper lamp is made from several components. The base portion is circular in shape and comprises of glass and brass. A zig-zag pattern is formed with the brass outlining the triangles and the glass filling in the sections. The brass outlines are held in place with three brass screws on each side. This is the main area of the lamp, that allows the light to shine through. The second portion of the lamp, the top half, is made primarily of copper with some brass. This top part is held in place by two hinges, one on either side; allowing the lamp to be opened, to replace the light bulb. The bottom section of this top component is made from brass, whereas the rest is made from copper. The copper section is essentially cylindrical in shape; however, it is somewhat beveled and has stylized curves.
