A Stunning Unique Large Hand Wrought Copper Lamp
This is a one off hand beaten copper lamp with original shade. Large enough to be floor standing.
Simply the best vintage light I have ever had. This is a true one off !
It was commissioned for the British Ambassador to the Congo circa 1980’s. It is a large and imposing lamp which could sit on the floor or a low side table.
The base consists of a hand beaten copper body which is topped by the most amazing copper and stiffened fabric shade. This is very heavy. Heavier than the base. There are 4 motifs featured on the shade: flower, bird, tortoise and Giraffe.
The lamp has been completely re-wired with black flex and an in line switch.
height to bottom of bulb holder: 68cm
body of base 22 x 22 cm
Circumference: 121 cm
total height of lamp with shade in situ: 95cm
