Notes

Abstract:
Keyhole-shaped lamp is embellished on either side of the spout with scrolling that arches away to create a fleur-de-lis shape for the spout. Leaf-shaped handle supports one of the three hanging chains. The other two attach to the forward part of the lamp along the upper edges between the fill hole and the spout. The three chains meet above the fill hole; a single length of chain extends to hang the entire object. The chain is made of links in which two circles are turned at 90 degrees from each other. The base is formed by a circle of metal located under the well. The object is free-standing.
