A Figural Sinumbra

England
Circa 1825

This stunning sinumbra in a patinated finish, depicts a maiden draped in Classical robes and carrying a basket of grapes on her head. The pedestal is rectilinear with canted corners which have been adorned with foliate cast volutes above a shaped base. The lamp is completed with a beautiful blown, frosted, and cut shade.
