$1,175.00

Call For Location | 203-325-8070


23" h x 14" w x 10.5" d

Bronze two light bouillotte lamp with swam form arms and green painted metal shade with floral gilt border. The unusual kidney shaped base with incised decoration, French, circa 1890. Bouillotte is an 18th century French gambling card game of the revolution based on Brelan, very popular during the 19th century in France and again for some years from 1830. It was also popular in America. The game is regarded as one of the games that influenced the open-card stud variation in poker. It also gave rise to the Bouillotte lamp, consisting of one or several candlesticks with a central standard equipped with a non-flammable adjustable shade, often made of tôle, a painted or lacquered metal, reflective white on the inside, dark on the outside, that could be lowered as the candles burned down.  Circa 1890's.

The shade has some minor staining of the inside and some surface mars to the exterior.
