801-AGS-NW  Gaslight Reproduction Victorian Diana Figural Newel Post Light

Outstanding Giant Silicon Bronze "Americana" Newel Post Light

Our original antique sample was made by Mitchell-Vance, New York.  This light is listed in the Mitchell Vance catalog of 1876 pg 46, Plate 216.  The catalog has been reprinted by Dover if you'd like to take a peek.

Note the lovely expression of her face, details of her necklace and sandals, and the billowing cape behind her.  Not another authentic one being made anywhere - now you can have this estate-quality piece in your home or business.

What a gorgeous piece...weighing in at over 100 pounds of solid brass-bronze with an antique finish to match.  Formerly gaslight, it's now wired...and UL approved...and capable of taking up to a 150 watt bulb.  Originally a newel post light and could be again if you had the strong enough newel post for it.

The base has an 11" round diameter, and has a removable subplate within it that screws down to the surface for permanent mounting.  We have seen these used on top of furniture and on pedestals for accent lighting, too.


  • Height:  55" overall, without the shade.
  • Base:  11" diameter.
  • Weight:  over 100 lbs.
  • Fitter Size:  4"
  • Wattage:  This light has been wired to UL standards, with one socket rated up to 150 watts incandescent.

These fixtures are designed to be wired in, and use a wall switch to turn on/off.  On/off switch available on the base for an extra $25.
