vintage brass lamp, French bouillette style, with vintage kapa shell shade, table lamp

A bouillette style lamp has a dish in the base and an adjustable metal shade. It was originally designed in the 18th century when people would play cards under candle light. They could put their chips for the pot in the base and the shade was adjusted as the candles burnt down. The style of lamp is named after the french card game bouillotte

This beautiful brass lamp is in the bouilotte style. It has 3 french horn style arms with candle lights. The covers on the arms are plastic. It measures 23" H x 6 1/2" W.

The kapa shell shade is a crisp, transluscent paper-like material with a metal frame that is painted gold. There are 80 panels on the shade. 3 of them have damage. Including 2 next to each other that have a hole (pic 4) and one on the bottom row where the panel and the frame are slightly damaged (pic 5). There are 8 other panels that have minor noticable scratches or minor cracks. It is still a very usable and displayable shade.
It measures 11" tall x 7" across the top narrowist section x 14" at the bottom the widest section.

I will ship the shade and the lamp separately. .
