Turkish Lanterns

 

We have mosaic lanterns & candle holders, hand-blown optic glass candle holders, and Ottoman and Selcuk style lanterns from Turkey. These lanterns and candle holders are all hand-done, which makes each one of them very unique and one-of-a-kind.

Mosaic lamps are made of original colour of glasses.When the lamp is lit , the glasses cause colorful shades , which can suddenly change the ambiance of a room by its inspiring view . None of the glasses are painted nor applied a transaction. Metal parts of the products are made of brass and filigree . Each parts of the lamps are handmade.

You can see the harmony of both brassand filigree techniques. The motifs which are visible on brasses , have gone on for a long time , from Middle Eastern countries. However , differently from brass , the filigree handworking only belongs to culture of Anatolia . Before , this technique has been used only for making jewels (e.g. : bracelets , earrings etc. ) . In time , this technique has been spreaded and started to be used in the way that these handmade lamps produced now.
