Double Column Table Lamp by Georges Pelletier

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Made by French ceramist Georges Pelletier in the early 1970s, the two columns of this wild ceramic sculpture each conceal a candle. The flickering light of the candles escapes from the backs and tops of the columns, creating a fascinating effect. Alternatively, the piece could be wired to accept ordinary light bulbs, at a small extra cost. This is a piece with a lot of presence, in any room.
