C1930 Art Deco’ Alabaster Campana Shaped Urn Electric Lamp

$650.00 with repaired lip.

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 33 cm tall and 24 cm in diameter. There is a repair to the lip, which we have put to the front in the images. As you can see, it makes little difference. This urn is lacquered and was made in either Italy or Spain.
