LANTERNS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES - SYRIA & EGYPT


 
 


FRINGED SYRIAN TABLE LAMP

The strands of beautiful, multicoloured
beading immediately identify this
table lamp as Syrian.

The metal of the dome and base
have a smooth cocoa brown glossy finish.
And the metal cutwork of the dome
is topped with a decorative finial.

When lit, delicate patterns are cast onto any nearby surface.

Size: 60 cms high, 26 cms wide

SYRIAN TRIPLE DRAGON CHANDELIER

Each of the three smaller domes
surrounding the main lamp are
supported from an arched
dragon head.

Fringes of tiny, ruby red beads decorate
each of the domes which are made of
bright brass cutwork.

Lamps like this are a favourite of
restaurant designers, including The Sultan's Tent, Toronto as well as Rick's Cafe in Casablanca.

Size: 70 cms high, 50 cms wide

LARGE EGYPTIAN BRASS CHANDELIER

This is one of the largest single lamps in our collection.

Made in Cairo of carved, dark antiqued metal and studded with a myriad of glass "gems" in a variety of colours.

The lamp is constructed of two hemispheres which form a single unit when linked by the supporting chains

BRASS & CRYSTAL CHANDELIER

The metal on this lamp is actually darker
than the photograph would suggest.
It's also a lighter gauge than is used
in the Moroccan and Turkish lamps
I usually deal with, so it requires
careful handling.

The overall effect however, is spectacular!

The metal lacework is inset with a number of large glass crystals that catch the light attractively.


Size: 50 cms high, 45 cms wide

HANGING EGYPTIAN BRASS LAMP

Another characteristic Egyptian lamp of the same dark antiqued brass as above.

Six elongated bulbs of mouthblown
glass accentuate the light source
and make a striking contrast against
the metal openwork.

Glass is available in green or amber

Size: 56 cms high, 36 cms wide
Total drop: 110 cms
