Ancaster Weatherbed oval lamp with contrast inset and black douppion silk lampshade, braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and an embedded mason’s mark of authentication.
The choice of stone on this lamp creates a dramatic contrast that highlights its natural beauty, something that’s always Ian’s priority when designing. Thanks to the tactile nature of stone as a material, our lamps are equally pleasing to the touch and to the eye.
Each block of British stone is specially selected to ensure its quality and usability. Then, the oval shapes are hand-worked separately before being bonded together to create vivid shadow. Our lamps are then hand-finished by our award-winning stonemasons, ensuring that you always receive the finest quality of craftsmanship. Finally, the finished stone is hand-honed and sealed to give it a surprisingly warm feel.
We pay acute attention to detail with all of our work, finishing the lamp with a braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and our own mason’s mark of authentication – a solid bronze coin – set in the back of the base.
Thanks to the nature of stone as a material, subtle variations in the stone and the fabric of the handmade, bespoke, silk shades guarantee that every lamp is unique.
