This elegant lamp has a sleek, modern sensibility, yet the organic simplicity of the Palm leaves gives it a warmth that is very appealing. It stands 21.5" tall, and the base width is 5.25". It has a one piece, all porcelain lithophane shade. The lamp base is steel, with a brushed finish, and is accented with an amber ball at the base. The bulb socket is an E-12, candelabra size, rated at 40W maximum. You may use an LED Candelabra bulb, which will allow for a brighter bulb using less power. A very 21st Century version of a 19th Century art.
