A hand-made Edwardian revival Floor lamp,  dating from the late 20Th Century.

The shade is all hand-made from mother-of-pearl and various other types of shell to create the texture and colour of love birds in a shimmering moonlit sky. The shells, being semi-transparent, make desirable components to mosaic lamp shades and are becoming very hard to come by these days.

Made for the Western market, these types of lamps were not in production for very long and the small factories were quickly taken over by cheaper, less labour intensive processes.
