Attributed to Gaetano Sciolari, circa 1960. Gold plated metal and opaline glass. 26cm x 20cm x 20cm x (10.2 x 7.8 x 7.8 x inches).

Glamorous and futuristic, these beautiful lamps feel like they were designed for a mid century Sci Fi movie. Extremely bold in form and finish, they have a real feeling of heft, solidity and substance that belies their size.

Not just an exercise in great aesthetics, they are a masterclass in functional design as well.  The opaline glass giving the most wonderful diffuse, warm, even light. These will certainly look amazing anywhere, but we feel they are the perfect bedside lamps.

Newly rewired to modern UK standards with Ivory braided cable and a new inline switch. Overall excellent condition with the normal age related wear to the gold plate (overall spotting/tarnishing which gives them a wonderful patina similar to a crackle glaze finish on a ceramic). Please see images. Opaline glass is in perfect condition. The top caps are lined in white enamel to the interior, and have no loss of enamel (this and the ventilation holes keep the tops cold while the light is on).

UK shipping is £50, excluding NI and hard to reach parts of the mainland. Please contact for international shipping quote

We are Rebecca Roche and Alex Coward.

Our background is in the visual arts, and we value craftsmanship and skill in all things.  This love for quality and beauty, and the scarcity of it in so much of modern manufacturing, has led us to this venture: A Bohemian boutique offering rare, unusual antiques, art pieces and vintage items for the home and garden.


Our style is not for the faint hearted!

We lean towards the highly decorative.  If you don't immediately recoil at the prospect of having a huge polychrome carved Balinese temple door in your living room you are in the right place.  We don't do beige or magnolia and we may not be the landlords go to choice, but why choose neutrals when you can have Turquoise or Gold?


We like painted things, woven things, carved things and gilded things.  If it is unique and beautiful, if the hand of the artist is present, we like it.  We love great design, elegant lines, bold colour. And gilded things.

We source items from across the ages, from 18th Century Asia to 20th Century Europe.  We want to help you create bespoke interiors, to mix and match; to provide an eclectic, rich, opulent and exotic living environment.
