A most favorite form in lighting, beautiful as well as fully functional, the French bouillotte lamp. This example is from the early 1800′s and is in old silver plate on cast and seamed brass with a proper steel standard. The green tole shade has a delicate incurvate detail. It has just been professionally rewired and is ready for elegant use. 26″H. 13.5″w. 10″d.  Priced at about half of some of the better copies, $1650.
