Japanese Andon lamp 19th century

Beautiful antique Andon lamp with Japanese rice paper. This lamp is from the time Japan finally opened up to the rest of the world. Their minimal designs had a big influence on the development of western modernism.

 

The lamp was originally made for oil. We electrified it. On the bottom it still has a little drawer for matches.

The wood shows some signs ware, but it is still in a good condition for its old age
