Description

When we found these incredible vintage fencing masks at an antique market in Florence, we knew we could make a great pair of table lamps with them. Massimo made custom table lamp stands for them out of iron that he finished with a gray paint. The masks are very similar but just slightly different shapes. They are beautifully handcrafted with leather and heavy wire mesh.  The lamps each support a candelabra light bulb up to 60 watts.
