"No room is complete without good lighting!!!  Great lamps are key to setting a comfortable mood in your home".  Cynthia Collins Interiors

An outstandingly decorative, very large, early Meiji period, Japanese Imari antique lamp.  The lamp decorated in the traditional Imari palette of cobalt blue, iron red and gilding. 

The decorative subject of exotic long tailed birds perched in a Japanese Maple, the Maple in autumn colours.   The base of the tree painted with tall stands of flowering chrysanthemums.  The reverse side of the lamp with delicately painted branches of autumn coloured Maple.  The flowering tree branches extending the full circumference of the lamp. 

The lamp seated in a very fine French, custom cast, Louis XV, Rococo style, C scroll ormolu base.  Although the Rococo is known as an 18th century artistic and design period, there was a revival of the Rococo style between 1820 and 1870.

The lamp cap matte gold plated.  This is an exceptional lamp of palatial style and proportion with no effort being spared in it's creation.  The lamp shown with a pleated, blue grey, silk shade suggestion.  This large lamp with a weight of 7kg/15.4 lbs
