Rare Bouillotte Lamp

$ 395.00

This pretty, vintage or antique lamp is a Bouillotte lamp in the French "tole peinte de lac" style and has a very interesting history. Bouilotte was a card game in the late 18th/early 19th century. The card players would play late into the night, and had lamps with adjustable shades so they could be lowered as the night went on and the candles burned down. The "tole" style refers to a folk art of painting on tin. This light is hand painted blue with gold, stencil applique designs. Lovingly restored and rewired in house.
