Angel At Bridge Painted Nightlight
Shipping calculated at checkout.
This handcrafted "lithophane"; a thin translucent porcelain night light, is made using a lost art from the 1800's. When lit from behind, the light shining through the different thicknesses of the carving causes a highly detailed image to appear in front, almost magically. Hand-applied ceramic underglaze coloring to the back of the porcelain, then kiln fired to fuse the color permanently to the porcelain. The color gently diffuses through the porcelain when lit, adding another layer of beauty to the piece. Because it is kiln fired onto the porcelain, the color will never fade or discolor. This timeless image of an angel watching over two children crossing a bridge hung as a print over the beds of countless baby boomers, and evokes comforting feelings of safety and protection. Simply a classic! Dimensions: 5.5" H. x 3.5" W x 2.25" D. 120V 7W incandescent bulb.
