The Jewel Votive Table Lamp was inspired by a jewel and pearl brooch that Duquette originally designed in 1972. This functional work of art is completely cast from bronze. The single tapered spear-like base suspends an egg-shaped medallion surrounded by sun rays - both recurring themes in Duquette's work. Finished in silver or 24-karat gold plate, the medallion shades a single 40-watt bulb, backlighting the form, capturing and reflecting light off the base, emanating from behind the medallion and cascading over the rays to create a stunning presentation. Circa 1972.
