A hand painted silvered Argento table lamp, the baluster vase body with floral designs surmounted by a hand sewn and pleated silk shade with a marble finial. The original Victorian.
Our lighting includes the largest variety of materials and techniques of all our products. Marble, glass, wood, ceramics and metals are expertly brought together to complete our intricate designs. Each shade is specifically designed for each individual lamp, taking up to eight hours to complete.
Crushed eggshell inlay, hand-tooling with gold leaf; hand-painting with fine art techniques, the ancient art of gilding and our Argento technique involving canvas wrapping, gilding and painting are just a few of the techniques used to create the authentic finishes on our furnishings. Using traditional tools and techniques handed down through the ages imbue each piece with an air of authenticity and individuality.
Theodore Alexander lampshades are meticulously handmade by skilled craftspeople. Most shades simply require a light dusting with a feather duster or soft brush to remove dust. Vacuum using smooth, light strokes with the small bristle attachment found on most vacuum cleaners, or gently wipe with a soft, clean cloth.
Theodore Alexander artists painstakingly create our hand-painted finishes using meticulous brushstrokes and age-old techniques. You can use a good quality furniture polish to maintain and preserve the unique artwork. Take care not to use abrasive cloths or polishes that may scratch a hand-painted finish.
