No tortoises were harmed in the creation of these vintage 1970's lamps. Glass transparent "bamboo tortoise shell" lamps for side tables with large shades or use them on a console with small shades, they're handsome and elegant. The brass base has a patina that is appropriate with age and use. These lamps can be found in the New York Times Book of Interiors.
Lamps measure 23" tall with hexagon 7" bases
