Original antique chinoiserie lamp dating to the 1920s, with typical painted and raised design against an ebonised background. Please read the whole description to asses condition. The lampshade is hand painted in an Oriental inspired design to compliment the base, and features an egret, a bird-of-paradise, Japanese acer and ravens in a mountain landscape with muted colours on a mustard yellow background. The lampshade is not antique but hand drawn and painted by Lacoona using pen, pigment ink and acrylics on cotton canvas. As with all of my lampshades this design is unique and will not be available in the same format again. The lampshade is semi-opaque, some of the detail can be seen through when lit, but most of the light is projected over the base. Would benefit from being used in a room where there are more sources of light so that it can be fully appreciated. The lamp base is 35 cm tall and the base is 11.5 cm in diameter. The lampshades measures 39 cm diameter. Comes with 2.5 m gold twisted fabric cable. The lamp base is in good antique condition with only superficial scratches and the chinoiserie design intact. Has been rewired using a period bakelite switched bulb holder, new twisted gold flex and modern 3 amp UK plug, but safety will need to be ascertained by a qualified electrician prior to use. The lampshade can be used with up to 11 ESE bulbs. Led bulbs are advisable as hot bulbs could damage the painting in the long run. Photographed with 5 W led bulb. The lampshade does have a flaw from fabrication, it was not constructed completely symmetrically when made and as a result it looks off centered when on the lamp base, from some angles more than others. Some of you may be able to cope with this and resolve to arrange in a such a way it looks good, while for others this could be very annoying indeed.
