Any inof on the Brass swag lamp? One of a kind or more available?



Carl,

My guess is that the lamp is of Mexican manufacture based on designs brought over during the Spanish Colonial period that were in turn based on Moorish designs. Many Moorish influences in Spain, you know, architecture, art, metal working, etc.





This one is of a bit better quality in manufacture and more polished in design, but I think you'll see the similarity.

If you search for "Lantern" images online with keywords like Moorish, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Turkish, or even Persian (ie: Moorish lantern), you'll see numerous examples of similar types of lanterns. Some just intricately pierced metal that cast beautiful lacy patterns of light, others with colored glass inserts that bathe the area with tinted light, and a combination of the two.

I'm sure you can find such lamps for sale online *like the above example.

Hope that helps.
