French gold Bouillotte style table light with handpainted shade
A gorgeous 3 light table lamp consisting of a French gold frame supporting a fabulous black painted lampshade, expertly crafted by master artisans at Badari in the Bouillotte style.
The term “Bouillotte” comes from a popular 18th century French card game of the same name. The original lamps featured a shade which could be raised or lowered on two posts, to protect the players’ eyes from the bright candlelight, as the game progressed, late into the night. These splendid lamps are also known as “tole” lamps.
