The Art Nouveau movement of the early 20th century was inspired by nature, Eastern art and design, and a desire to create objects that were both beautiful and functional. This glowing stained-glass turtle lamp with a brass-finished base is made in the tradition of classic art glass from the 1910s. Chinese mythology tells that the tortoise is one of four creatures who rule the corners of heaven, where it represents strength, longevity, and endurance. The accent lamp will add a cozy glow to any corner of your home. The lamp takes a 15-watt bulb (included).
