Pair of Vintage Royal Sword Handles Fashioned into Electric Desk Lamps. Pair of handsome table lamps fashioned out of brass swords which I believe bear the Royal Cypher for Edward VII.
Steel hilt guard bears a Royal Cypher of Edward VII showing intertwined ERIV standing for King Edward VII. Edward VII Albert Edward; 9 November 1841? 6 May 1910 was King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions and Emperor of India from 22 January 1901 until his death.
As king, Edward played a role in the modernisation of the British Home Fleet and the reorganisation of the British Army after the Second Boer War. He re-instituted traditional ceremonies as public displays and broadened the range of people with whom royalty socialised. He fostered good relations between Britain and other European countries, especially France, for which he was popularly called "Peacemaker", but his relationship with his nephew, Kaiser Wilhelm II, was poor. The Edwardian era, which covered Edward's reign and was named after him, coincided with the start of a new century and heralded significant changes in technology and society, including steam turbine propulsion and the rise of socialism. He died in 1910 in the midst of a constitutional crisis that was resolved the following year by the Parliament Act 1911, which restricted the power of the unelected House of Lords.
Lamps stand 15 tall with shade. The sword handles measure about 7" with the hilt being about 5" in diameter. Both in good working order but need a good cleaning.
