The enamelled tolework canister has a hand-painted scene entitled 'The Castle at Ferrara' depicting a street scene in the historic Italian city, and was one from a larger set that was made to hold various blends of tea ,having come from a traditional grocer shop in victorian England. The modern lamp base with metal rod and light fixing has been custom made for the antique canister to sit inside , and supports a modern 'coolie hat' lampshade.

This item is available for the same price with or without the lampshade- since the shade may add uneconomically to the shipping cost.
