C1960 Orientalist Electric Lamp


Initially made as a candle m lamp, we have just had this wonderful Thai inspired lamp wired for electricity, with an in-line switch. Made in the 1960s when the Australian passion for Asian things was at its greatest frenzy, the lamp is a pierced brass sleeve with a white translucent glass liner. There is a figure on each side. I expect this looked perfect in a room with shantung silk curtains, and Chinese "Rosewood: furniture, something like the room shown, which is in the heritage Shanghai Mansion Hotel .


35 cm tall and 10.5 cm diameter.
