Ancaster Weatherbed large curved lamp with herb-coloured douppion silk lampshade, braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and an embedded mason’s mark of authentication.
The large circumference of the lamp base gives a solid ‘chunky’ feel while retaining a graceful curve. The intentional simplicity of the design underlines the beauty of the natural stone, which is always Ian’s priority when designing. Stone is an incredibly tactile material and should be equally pleasing to the touch and to the eye.
Each block of British stone is specially selected and hand-carved and finished by our stonemasons here in Staffordshire. The stone is then hand-honed and sealed to finish it with a luxurious feel of the absolute finest quality.
We pay particularly close attention to the details of each of our lamps, all of which are finished with a braided cable, antique brass fittings and our own mason’s mark of authentication, a solid bronze coin, set into the back of the base.
The subtle variations in the stone and the fabric of each handmade, bespoke, silk shades guarantee that every lamp is unique.
