A cesendello, or sanctuary lamp, has its roots in Rome and Byzantium, and later became popular in Venice and the Muslim world.
The profile of this elegant spiral structure recalls the twist of a turban.
The refined silhouette represents the synthesis of the Oriental and Renaissance themes present in Venice as early as the 15th century.
The arc wall mounted version of the Cesendello lamp comes in gold and silver.

Gorgeous and with the advantage of immortality. My decades old silk lamps show a few small tears and moth holes I won’t fear with these. More advantages are imperviousness to candle heat and smudge, moisture and sunlight, though it must be said sone rooms only shine with the delicately luminous silk. Perfect and quality throughout, lend a luxurious exotic atmosphere and blend into whichever style home they find.
