Chinoiserie Citron Lantern

1920s antique floor lamp with an abundance of flowers has been hand painted and holds a hand-dyed exotic Chinoiserie Citron Lantern silk lampshade. The lantern shaped shade is dyed a lemon yellow and has six panels with colorful antique Chinese embroidered peony and bird appliqués. The top of the lantern is covered with silver metallic lace and the bottom ovals are filled with antique gold mesh. A gossamer rare French netting overlays the large panels giving a beautiful shimmer to the shade. 

Adorning the shade is hand-beaded fringe in colorful matching tones of pinks, gold, chartreuse and citron and six long dramatic tassels. A bespoke pull chain completes the lamp. It lights up beautifully! 

Overall height is 63 inches to the top of the finial.
