Here at Regent Antiques we firmly believe that there is nothing more important than lighting when designing a modern or indeed a period style interior. We stock many different types and styles of lighting and we are confident that we will have something to meet your lighting requirements for both indoor and outdoor use.

Whilst some lighting is simply functional, there is also a lot of it which is there to provide atmosphere and ambience and to emphasise other design elements of an interior, such as wall surfaces and textures, or indeed an exterior in some cases. Please also see our range of lighting that may be used outside, including some very fine bronze statues converted for use as lamps and other bronze lighting pieces.

Our range of antique lamps and antique lighting pieces is carefully chosen to include examples for all of your lighting requirements and the contemporary and vintage pieces are representative of the styles in which they have been made.

When planning a new interior, or enhancing an existing one, have a look at our range of lighting and check back regularly because we are introducing new items all the time to replace those which are sold. If you see an item of antique lighting that you like, don’t delay, as these sell quickly and are often difficult to replace.

We stock a wide range of lighting, including candlesticks and candelabra, as well as many other types of lamp and lighting accessories.

Another very popular and much sought after type of lighting is the chandelier and you will usually find a variety of these in our London showroom, in a range of popular antique and vintage styles including Antique French Louis XIV Style, French Regency style, Venetian style and Art Nouveau - well worth the trip if you can possibly make it. Antique chandeliers vary in terms of size and style and we always aim to have examples in stock to meet all needs and budgets.

Another popular category of lighting item is the table lamp and, once again, our showroom is a treasure trove for anyone who is considering acquiring a vintage or antique table lamp.

In fact, we are very strong in lighting and a trip to our showrooms will often be the only one you need to make, so please use the website to create a shortlist and then, if you can, come and see for yourself just how varied our selection of antique and period lighting is.

Our north London showrooms are very easy to find and are conveniently located close to rail and public transport links, including Manor House tube station which is on the Piccadilly Line. You will often find many examples of beautiful antique lighting and other antique items on display but if you are travelling to see a particular item please call first to make sure that it is still available to view as we would not want you to have a wasted trip.

If you cannot visit the showrooms and you have questions about any of our antique chandeliers, candelabra, table lamps or other antique and collectable pieces then you are always most welcome to contact us by telephone or email using the contact details found at the top of every product description page.

Antique Pair Large Empire Ormolu Bronze Candelabra C1860

Antique Pair Large Empire Ormolu Bronze Candelabra C1860

Dating from around 1860, this is an exquisite large antique pair of dark patinated bronze and gilded ormolu five light, four branch Empire candelabra. Each of these candelabra is cast as a classical muse and stands on canted square plinths cast with acanthus. This beautiful pair of bronze candelabra are in elegant Empire style, a neoclassical style prevalent in France during the first part of the 19th century. We bought these on our last buying trip to Montpelier. Condition These ormolu bronze candelabra are in excellent original condition. Please check the photographs for confirmation of this. More About Empire Style The Empire style that these ormolu bronze candelabra are typical of, was an early 19th century design movement that spanned not only the decorative arts and furniture, but also architecture and the visual arts in Europe and America. The style originated in France during the reign of Napoleon I taking its name from the First French Empire where it was intended to idealize Napoleon’s leadership. It corresponds to the Regency style in England, the Biedermeier style in German-speaking lands and the Federal style in the United States. The overall design ethic was based on aspects of the Roman Empire and is considered the second phase of neoclassicism which was so popular throughout the 18th and early 19th centuries. Motifs draw heavily from ancient Greek and Roman symbols and ornamentation, as is the case with these dark patinated bronze and gilded ormolu candelabra which display figures of the Muses, ancient Greek goddesses. More About Ormolu Ormolu is the 18th century English term used to describe the French method for gilding bronze with a fine gold veneer. Involving coating the item with a mercury amalgam containing high-carat fine powdered gold, the item would then be fired in a kiln ensuring the mercury was driven off leaving the golden gilt surface. However, the method using mercury was outlawed in France in the 1830s, due to the toxic nature of mercury. In more modern times electroplating was used to gild bronze and other metals, although some authorities believe that the mercury method produced a better quality finish.

Antique Pair Ormolu Verde Antico Marble Candelabra

Antique Pair Ormolu Verde Antico Marble Candelabra c.1860

Dating from around 1860, this is a beautiful antique pair of highly decorative late 19th Century French green "verde antico" marble and gilded ormolu ovoid three-light candelabra. The branches and sconces are superbly cast as roses, with decorative twin handles to the sides, and raised on acanthus and fruiting laurel socles. Condition These gilded ormolu and marble candelabra are in excellent condition. Please refer to the photographs for confirmation of this. More About ‘Verde Antico’ “Verde antico” is Italian for ‘ancient green’ and denotes a type of stone that has been very popular as a decorative facing stone since ancient times. As the name suggests, it is a dark, dull green, white-mottled or white-veined serpentine rock which takes a high polish. More About Ormolu Ormolu is the term for the gilding process that was used extensively in France. The process involved gilding a metal surface using mercury amalgam that had been mixed with fine powdered gold. The item would be fired in a kiln at high temperatures and the mercury would burn off leaving the gold veneered surface. Mercury was banned by statute in France in the 1830s and the more modern gilding process uses electroplating.
