Lamp, 19th century

Glazed ceramic with wood base, brass hardware, and silk shade , 62.2 x 16.5 cm (24 1/2 x 6 1/2 in.)


The floral design and blue glazes of this lamp compliment the desk it sits on in the Macknight Room. Isabella used the desk as a workspace and surrounded herself with objects from different regions of the world. We can imagine Isabella writing letters by the light cast from this lamp.
