Lamps from the retro era were made with a wide variety of materials and the use of these materials in combination with one another was part of the exploration of design styles. The use of bronze and marble in concert with one another, no matter whether marble was simply used as the base or as a feature element, has resulted in some extremely attractive lamps.
In quite a few cases the most successful way in which bronze and marble were used was by forming the lamp base into a bronze figurine that is standing on a platform of marble. These antique lamps are definitely worthwhile tracking down.
