Art Deco Porcelain Night Light
A curved porcelain lithophane shields the night light bulb and creates this beautiful image.
Lithophanes are a 19th Century invention, in which an image is carefully carved into wax, then a mold is made from that wax using plaster, similarly to how jewelry is often cast from a wax carving. Porcelain is then poured into the mold, then fired in a kiln, creating a translucent shield with incredible depth and clarity, with the durability of porcelain.
Each shield rests in a metal frame, allowing easy access to the 120V 7W incandescent bulb. Should the shield or light fixture ever need replacing, they separate easily and the clip that holds them together will clip onto a standard night light.
Comes packaged in a gift box with a card that explains the history of the process.
