Kovels Item

Bronze is an alloy of copper, tin, and other metals. It is used to make figurines, lamps, and other decorative objects. Though bronze resists corrosion better than other metals, it can still degrade if it gets the "bronze disease." Bronze lamps are listed in the Lamp category. Pieces listed here date from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. For more information, explore our metal, lighting, clock, and hardware identification guides.
