This lovely lamp is based on the original candle lit frames that were used to display Lithophanes in the 19th Century. I patterned it after an authentic antique Lithophane lamp in my private collection. It makes a great accent piece on a night stand, dresser, shelf, mantle, or bookshelf. This solid cast metal light stands 9 ¼“ tall, and is finished in antique brass. A "candle cup" in back holds the raised light bulb socket, so the bulb is centered perfectly behind the porcelain panel.
Comes complete with 6ft. cord, a bright 25 watt bulb, and an in-line rotary switch on the cord. Nicely boxed with a brief history of Lithophanes right on the box.
Victorian Stand - This solid cast metal light stands 9.25 inches tall- and is finished in antique brass. Comes complete with a 6 ft. cord- 25 watt bulb- and a brief history of Lithophanes. Size of the Panels: Approx. 3-1/2 inches x 4-1/2 inches.
Lithophanes are the amazing 3 dimensional porcelain transparencies that we are renown for. As light shines through the varying depths of the etched porcelain panels, they come alive with remarkably detailed images.
