these were over $15000 in 2007.
hand made bulbs too, so if one goes – tough luck.
This is the kind of steampunk I like. Almost everything at least LOOKS like it has a purpose in the object.
Looks like it belongs on the set of David Lynch’s Dune. That’s a compliment.
Very nice art, I wish stuff like that would be sold in stores
I agree with the poster who said it brings to mind something that would be in Peter Lynch’s “Dune”.
What, the movie where 19-th century social and political constructs exist side-by-side with high technology, but said technology also involves knife fights (to say nothing of the book’s flapping-wing flying machines that didn’t make it into the movie)?
Maybe I’m missing some nuance of steampunk (is finished oak a requirement for every steampunk piece?), but I tend not to think the two aesthetics are mutually exclusive.
This is awesome! Do want!
This is the sort of thing so gorgeous that it makes me want to build a special room so that I would have the space to craft the perfect desk just so that I could set that lamp atop it. Of course, then I would have just the PERFECT lighting with which to analyze all of the bills that I didn’t pay while constructing my “lamp room”.
Think again. Go watch David Lynch’s “Dune” and have your report on my desk by 8:00 am tomorrow.
