About

From the iconic Paavo Tynell series nicknamed the Canon shell, this beautiful piece has the "threatening" appearance of a falling bomb shell, yet the softness of spring with the flower decoration masterfully placed on the shaft. This piece has a beautiful patina and retains the original opal glass shade. A beautiful masterpiece in design to adorn luxurious interiors.
