Product details

Seller's Notes: This is a shapely vase- or urn-shaped 18" table lamp made of buff-colored Italian alabaster. Alabaster--which is similar to marble, but softer, more luminous, and easier to carve--famously comes from Volterra, a Tuscan hill town in Italy. Vintage alabaster lamps can be extremely elegant, especially if the form is graceful and inspired by classical Roman forms, as here. This is a good-size for reading, either on the sofa or in bed, or for use on a buffet, where its weight and mass will keep it solidly in place. This lamp is wired and functional, with a modern replacement plug on the end. The lamp shows some chips and cracking (see pictures) giving it the appearance of an archaeological Roman antiquity. Despite this, the lamp is very solid and the cracks do not seem to make it vulnerable in any way. The stone has a warm-toned, buff color, darkening to gold in places, with some age-related discoloration at the color and on the base. It has a honed finish, and is not highly polished. The metal parts show oxidization. Its distressed look will work best in rustic or industrial spaces, with raw wood, natural stone and other rough finishes, or minimal interiors where its textural qualities provide contrast with sleek surfaces. Use an unconventional, pared down shade in a special material to enhance its weathered antique appearance, rather than compete with it. I love handsome, timeless alabaster lamps, and I think you will too. I believe everyone has the right spot in their home for a touch of wonderful alabaster. Where's yours?
