THE LAKE OF LYNDON FAIRE:
PORCELAIN MANTEL LAMP

These lovely lamps are identical to our night lights except that the porcelain image is set in a beautiful metal frame that arrives complete with a gold cord. The frame measures 9.5" tall and 4.75" wide and has a formal appearance that will be beautiful on your dresser, night stand, fireplace mantel, coffee table, or book shelf. This is one of our favorite products, we only wish we could take credit for creating it. Lovingly made by master craftsmen; this is what they say about their work:

"Lithophanes were conceived in 1827, when it was discovered that a remarkable three dimensional image could be produced by shining light through a carving of varied thicknesses in porcelain. These beautiful transparencies are achieved by first carving the image into beeswax. The translucency of the wax allows the artist to see the result of his labor as he works. A plaster casting is taken from this masterwork, then a fine porcelain paste is pressed into this mold. After drying, the panels are kiln fired to 2300 degrees, to achieve their extreme density and amazing translucency. Over half do not survive this process; a testimony to the difficulty of this technique. We are dedicated to the preservation and continuation of this most unusual art form."
