Material and finish
Hanover is made from iron and aluminium, so it’s substantial but light enough to be moved around the room. It’s plated in nickel – a hardwearing, tarnish-resistant finish that’s warmer and less modern than chrome, but not as traditional as brass.
One of the details that gives this lamp its traditional feel is the cupped platform just below the shade. It’s like a ‘bobeche’, which you often find on candlesticks to catch dripping wax. Hanover also has a braided black silk flex.
