Shard Tortoise Shell Table Lamp

Shard Tortoise Shell Table Lamp

The elegant design of the Shard Tortoise Shell Table Lamp will compliment most home or office interior. Made with solid brass and tortoiseshell print, the lamp is a gorgeous statement piece for any living room. The Shard lamp works well in both contemporary and traditional home decor and comes with a silk bowed empire crème shade.

Tortoise shell has always been an expensive material because its beautifully mottled appearance appealed to people. The shell was very popular with the Victorians. They manufactured a wide variety of items such as fans, boxes, tea caddies, spectacles and photo frames.

The material came from the shells of the larger species of tortoise and turtle. The initial processing involved separating the layers of the scutes from the animal’s carapace by heating, softening the plates and flattening them in a press.

The lamp compliments our tortoise shell Sophie jewellery box  creating a glamorous contemporary addition to console or side table. We also love to combine it with our luxury Suzi B console table and the Suzi side table.

Lastly the tortoise shell table lamp is exceptionally easy to clean. Just wipe with a dry cloth.

Please note, in 1973, the trade of real tortoiseshell worldwide was banned under CITES.
