This exquisite lamp is a collaboration between my wife and I. She did the beautiful Victorian shade and I the copper sculpture base. This lamp stands 22 inches tall to the top of the amethyst and copper sculpture finial and 10 inches across. It consists of an amethyst colored fabric hand stitched over a heat resistant first layer and topped off with a silk rayon blend embroidered voile for a shimmery decorative effect. The lamp then has a hand beaded fringe sewn onto the bottom.This fringe is made of iridized seed beads turning to amethyst chip beads for a very rich and dazzling look. The stitching on this shade is covered with a hand dyed braid for a finished look. The base is a copper sculpture with three candelabra bulbs controlled by a push brass button switch to the bottom of the base. It then has another full circle of fringe giving the whole lamp a very three dimensional look. This lamp is signed and dated and made to be a family heirloom.
