History Of The Southwest Floor Lamp
Light up your world with a little bit of the Southwest with this hand forged pine sapling lamp. Beginning with a sandstone base from the area surrounding the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona, this lamp displays the history of the Southwest in one unique piece for your home. Within the sandstone, you may find fossils. The area inside and surrounding the Petrified Forest is well known as fossil rich. Within the park, many well-preserved fossils have been found from the Late Triassic Period and fossils have been found in the sandstone outside the park as well. Moving forward in time, we have the hand forged wrought iron pine sapling created by our master blacksmiths. In the Old West horses were needed for transportation most places and where there were horses there were blacksmiths working wrought iron, just as our blacksmiths work today. Another thing commonly found in the Old West were lever action rifles. Used for hunting or protection, rifles were found throughout the West and have their own place in the history of the area. We finish with a genuine rawhide shade that has been hand stitched.
This lamp, just as all of our lighting, is UL rated and will make a fabulous addition to your home. The rifle is a non-working replica and is solidly attached to the base and the iron sapling. Using rawhide for the shade will provide a soft glow as the light diffuses through the semi-transparent material. Bring the glow of the Southwest into your home with this historic timeline lamp.
