"Seeking Stiffel lamp refinishing / reconditioning"

2003

RFQ: I am the owner of a 27 year old Stiffel lamp. I took the lamp to a lamp doctor who claimed to be an expert on cleaning and refurbishing this style lamp. He ruined the finish and I would like to know if and where I can take the lamp to have it refinished.

A. Hi Shirley. It presumably needs to be brass plated again. See if you can find a local plating shop which offers brass plating. Good luck.

RFQ: I have several Stiffel lamps that need refinishing. I had a contact one time with the company directly and they had refinished my other lamps. Do you know where I can get these other lamps done. Please email me back ASAP. Thanks.

RFQ: I have 2 vintage Stiffel lamps that have minor corrosion damage. Need the finish repaired to an antique finish. I have polished the corrosion off but now the finished places does not match the lamp. Help.

Brass Darkening Solution


A. Hi Susan. One possibility you could consider is brass darkening solution. However, the seller only recommends for solid brass, not the plated brass of your Stiffel lamps. In other words, it may work or may make it worse. But if you have to send them out for replating anyway, you might take a chance.
