$199.00


Vintage HAND CARVED Antique CAMEO SHELL LAMP OF NAPLES Bay

ITALY Ca 1880-1909

This beautiful VINTAGE lamp is a CARVED CONCH SHELL and the scene

presented is of NAPLES BAY IN ITALY. This beautiful lamp is a carved conch

shell and the scene presented is of Naples Bay Ca 1880-1900. The carving

depicts a volcano (Pompeii,Mount Vesuvius ??) erupting behind a body of

water with sail boats. There's a tall baobab looking tree in the foreground and

what looks like a hillside village on the left edge of the carving. The bottom of

the scene is carved to look like shrubs with a floral design.

IT IS A hand carved CAMEO LAMP AND sits on a walnut base and measures

approx 7 7/8" tall. Still has the original cloth wiring which does

work (see pictures). Condition: Wiring is frayed on one end which should be

either fixed or replaced. Also, there is a small hole on the upper right

of the carving which was there when I purchased it

(Looks like it has always been there, PROBABLY THERE WHEN TAKEN

from the sea). JUST ADDS TO THE CHARM OF THIS LOVELY OLD

PIECE. Would make a BEAUTIFUL AND ELEGANT NIGHT LIGHT.

Would also be a VERY DECORATIVE AND INTERESTING ADDITION

as a night light ATTACHED to the base area of a THREE WAY lamp.

REALLY A GREAT DECORATOR'S ITEM!
