Achieving a tortoise shell finish by painting glass is a true feat. The artisans who create our Ninon Table Lamp know this as well as anyone. The deep orange that spreads along the surface of the glass body of the lamp has been mottled with black to feel of a piece with the black silk shade. While the antique brass hardware and finial echo the golden tones in the lampâ??s body, the black stacked optic crystal base accentuates the darker hues.
