Historical gem! From the 1940s wartime when difficulties finding goods and factories sparked alternative solutions. This original shade is made from tiny paper yarns, tied by hand with thread. The condition is excellent! This model is well documented in archives but this is the only piece we have ever seen. There is nothing like this out there, it is truly spectacular. 

Diameter: 23.7" x 30" H

Lisa-Johansson-Pape (b. 1907 d. 1989): One of Finland's most innovative lighting designers, using war-time rations she mixed materials and created shapes that brought her designs worldwide fame. "A lamp is not the actual purpose, but more like an instrument. It must fulfill its purpose as a provider of light, but at the same time, it must also satisfy the aesthetic demands. A good light fixture must be simple, and its structure and function must be both neat and correct"
