High/Low: The Modern Banker’s Desk Lamp

January 16, 2019

News of a new product from one of our favorite lighting makers, UK-based Original BTC, recently landed in our in-box.  The company’s banker’s desk lamp is a modern take on the traditional version—instead of an emerald glass shade, it has a shade made of white bone china and a graceful brass base. Here’s a look (plus a lower-priced version):

The white bone shade is hand-cast from a mold at the company’s ceramics factory in Stoke-on-Trent. The brass base, meanwhile, is fabricated at its Birmingham metal works.
