The Apothecary Table Lamp - Verbascum

Country of Wiring:
North America

The Apothecary Table Lamp is hand painted by artist Sophie Coryndon in her Sussex studio. The design is inspired by Moorish earthenware jars known as Albarelli. These jars were used to hold ointments, medicines and even gunpowder and became popular in Italian apothecaries in the 15th century. To differentiate their contents the jars were painted with individual designs which Sophie references in the artwork of each lamp.

Each of the 6 designs is limited to an edition of 30 with names which allude to their original medicinal contents.

Dynamic leaves and flowers in two shades of green plunge over the surface of this lamp, named for the medicinal plant Verbascum thapsus or mullein. Verbascum was described by the Roman scholar Pliny the Elder in his Natural History, and its healing powers have been tried on everything from colds to sunburn. Spirited and fresh, this is the most energetic of the Albarello patterns.
