Sicilian Caltagirone Pigna Pine Style Finial/Lamp Base
This lamp base was handcrafted and hand-painted by Giacomo Alessi, and the pinecone-like shape traditional to the region. As is seen in the seondary images, this piece of Italian pottery is drilled for wiring, but it could also be beautiful as decor without the lamp, for it is a beautiful finial in its own right. Artisan Giacomo Alessi is not only a master of his craft, he is also a scholar in the field. His work both in majolica and in writing has been featured and published internationally and is especially cherished in Italy. His pieces from Caltagirone evoke a mythological world of beauty cultivated by the rich Sicilian culture.
This Sicilian Pigne Lamp Base is 9.5″ in height and has a 6.5″ diameter at its widest point. Measurements are approximate. It is a slightly different blue from the other Sicilian Pine Style Lamp Base we have from the region.
