Italian table lamp with black shell and red coral mosaic [1794]


£ 1,976.04

A sumptuous Italian table lamp with a silvery-white coloured palladium metal finish. The base features a beautiful mosaic of black tab shell, red coral, and shells made of white, gold and black mother of pearl.

The simple black shade is made of pasteboard, edged here with red to complement the base. All metal parts are cast initially in bronze and then plated with palladium.

Palladium was only discovered in 1803, and being resistant to tarnishing, is very useful as an alternative to silver for beautiful jewellery, household objects, and ornaments, such as table lighting. It is 30 times more rare than gold, and belongs to the platinum group of metals.

This magnificent table lamp comes from a large collection of luxury Italian lighting. Many of the pieces in the manufacturer's catalogue grace the tables, floors, walls and ceilings of grand hotels, casinos, palaces and embassies all over the world.

This particular light is offered for sale here in this finish only, but we can offer you a bespoke service with many more possibilities, including a 24 carat gold-plated finish. Please contact us if you have any special requirements and we will be happy to be of further help.
