Ostrich egg and wrought iron.

Many typical elements of Gilbert Poillerat's production allow us to attribute this lamp to him. Indeed, in addition to the quality of the wrought iron, the shape of the foot is close to other lamps listed in his catalogue and the shape of the sphere recalls his creations called astrolabes.
