Peacock Stained Glass Illuminated Hand-Carved Pedestal
Pedestals with Personality
I 'm very pleased with the pair of handsome peacock pedestals I purchased to hold table lamps on either side of my living room fireplace. Each pedestal contains a long-lasting, cool-burning CFL bulb, which is controlled by an on/off switch on a cord that can rest on the floor pretty much out of view. The pedestals are the focal points of the room, especially when illumined in low-light conditions. I am also impressed by the fact that the wood (which is dark brown with a slightly reddish cast) is carved and finished on all sides. This will come in handy at Christmas time, when I will continue to need the pedestals to hold up my lamps but will want to turn the peacock panels around to the rear so as not to compete with my lighted Christmas decorations.

Beautiful Stained Glass of a Peacock and Carved Mahogany Detail
We dreamed of purchasing this beautiful peacock stand for the original idea of using for a stairway post for our foyer entry. We finally were able to afford to order it, 2 years later and found that we had not done our homework. It was too short for our original idea, but it works great as a telephone stand for our parents' 50s style telephone. It was so beautiful that we designed our whole dining room around this gorgeous piece. Thank you Toscano and we will definitely order other products to suit our Victorian tastes!!!!

lovely glass design
Love the way this looks. Only negative issue is that you have to turn it upside down to change the lightbulb, not mentioned in the description.

PROUD AS A PEACOCK
This illuminated pedestal is a solid, attractively carved piece at the top and at the base. Beautifully illuminated, it shows off the several colors of the framed art glass peacock. It has proved to be an ideal piece for an otherwise dark corner of our dining room where it serves as a fine match for a nearly centuries-old dining room set. You'll be proud as a peacock to own this one.

This piece is wonderful. My wife has a vase that was passed down from four generations and I need to tell you it looks great upon this pedestal. I love the Stain glass window.
