THIS ITEM IS NOT AVAILABLE
Modern Chrome Lamp with a Tropical Touch:
A striking table lamp of chrome plated wrought iron with a remarkable lamps shade made from fossilized cocoa leaves, these lighting pieces are hand made to formidable standards by skilled craftspeople working under fair-trade conditions. The quality is evident in each work, and the impact of light filtered through an intricately assembled shade unmatched by most any lamp available today.
See why so many people are impressed with these incredible designs!
The amazing lamp shade material is refined through a process of drying and fossilizing cocoa leaves that lasts more than four months and sees about 20% of the leaves survive the ordeal. Cocoa leaves are thoroughly dried throughout most of that period, then hand rubbed to remove the chlorophyll, leaving only the leaf's skeletal form. This form is stained with organic dye, carefully placed on a heat resistant backing, and then hand trimmed before receiving a coat of sealant to maintain integrity.
