Sculptural Monroe Gold Wall Sconce, Polished Brass, White Lampshade, Art Light

$5,450per item


1. Product description: The “Monroe” wall lamp is made of brushed brass cast with a lampshade adorned by a gold tassel fringe complementing the set. After smelting, a process known for thousands of years widely used in brass and bronze sculptures and precious metal works, the legs are sanded to get their curvy shape. In the end, the brass is protected with a high-quality anti-stain varnish to prevent oxidation. The lampshade is lined with high quality fabrics. Bessa prides itself on creating handmade functional art furniture built to order by highly skilled Portuguese artisans. 2. Inspiration: Marilyn Monroe, the sexiest Pin-up of the 1950s, inspired another piece of Art & Design. The Monroe wall lamp was born from the Monroe floor lamp and its design captures the essence of Marilyn's image and the sensuality of her legs. The lampshade and the gold tassel fringe complement the set, reminding the dresses used at the time. One hundred percent hand-worked with noble materials, the Monroe wall lamp is another piece that expresses a familiar story, bringing passionate memories. 3. Product Dimensions: W 41cm (16.15'') H 175cm (68.9'') D 21cm (8.27'') 4. Materials: Hand polished brass and anti-stain varnish, fabric (51% Trevira + 49 Pl), silk tassel fringe.
