Upscale Moroccan Lantern.

This is the Moorish style lighting you find in upscale riad hotels in Fez and in lavish homes.

Using a fine blade fretsaw tool, the master artisan starts by placing a paper pattern of a complex drawing onto a brass sheet. then carefully does the intricate cutting work following the curves of the pattern on paper. Brass is cut, sculpted and engraved with extreme finesse.

The fretsaw work gives this style of Moroccan lighting a high level of craftsmanship not found otherwise in the standard Moroccan lanterns. The high quality of these Moroccan lamps is enhanced by hand-engraving over the brass metal giving them added texture and beauty. An art of brassware that is still practiced among skilled craftsmen in Morocco.

WIRING: Please note that lighting products are priced without electric components. Because of the different wiring standards in Morocco, the wiring is done in the United States and is priced separately. We offer custom wiring out of our Sausalito, California shop and we use high-quality lamp parts to wire each fixture. UL listing is also available at an additional charge.
