danish, lampsusanne sigenlaubComment

Michael Gottlieb Bindesbøll took elements of Greek, Roman and Egyptian design to create a Nordic neoclassicism style. His best example of this style is the Thorvaldsen museum in Copenhagen. 

This table lamp, which is made of bronze and patinated bronze is frequently referenced as a design by MG Bindesbøll. It clearly has all the hallmarks of his taste for the classics and the base is after a form that was often used for a torchere in ancient Greece.

We currently have two of these lamps in inventory that could easily work as a pair. See more details here.
