The criterion for using reproductions should be the quality of design. Robert Kime, Interior Designer.
A very pretty, contemporary Chinese, accent lamp, or task light of Mei Ping vase shape. The lamp with a fine monochrome Robin’s egg blue glaze. Mei Ping translates as “Plum vase” and was traditionally designed to hold a single branch of Spring time plum blossom, it is one of the earliest of the Chinese vase shapes and was especially popular during the Song (960–1279) and Ming (1368–1644) periods.
The Mei Ping is said to be inspired by human physical characteristics, especially a small mouth, a short, narrow neck, a plump bosom, and a concave belly! This elegant little lamp seated in a water gilded American maple wood base, the lamp with a gold plated lamp cap. The lamp designed for a 25w lamp socket. The lamp shown with a pleated, ivory silk shade suggestion.
Accent lamps are designed to produce a mood, a look or feel in a room, rather than providing a major source of light in a space. In general, an accent lamp is a relatively small lamp, with usually no more than a maximum height of about 20" / 50cm including the lamp shade. Accent lamps also serve as decorative accents within a room.
The name “accent lamp” is derived from the word “accentuate”, meaning to emphasize something, or to make something more noticeable. Accent lamps, by example, can be used on a writing desk, a mantle piece, or side table.
