C1930 Vintage French Brass Bouillotte Lamp

SOLD


This high quality vintage, brass, 1930s French Bouillotte lamp features three globes in candle supports. It copies an 18th century French form, originally lit by candles. The green shade is enamelled metal: tole. Shades for bouillotte lamps are traditionally tole so they would not catch fire. True to the originals, the shade can be adjusted in height, originally to allow for the diminishing candles. Bouillotte is a card game, so bouillotte lamps usually have a tray base for the storage of gambling chips. Newly rewired with gold "silk" cord, with inline switch. 62 cm tall, and 38 cm diameter.

They sat on small circular marble topped Bouillotte tables, making a convenient gaming arrangement. $695
