C1900 Carved Alabaster Urn Electric Uplight


Perfect for uplighting paintings, so they don't reflect glare, these Campana shape urns made of the translucent stone alabaster are decorative at night or say. The Pharaonic Egyptians used the translucency of alabaster to make lamps, and a splendid one was unearthed in Tutankhamun's tomb. This one stands 31 cm tall and 19 cm in diameter. Probably Italian.
