Lamp Made With Vintage Shell Motor Spirit Can
Size: 24cm x 33cm (including handle) x 15cm approx.
Lamp made with vintage Shell Motor Spirit can and globe light bulb.
When I bought this can in a market it was in need of a good cleaning and some tlc.
I gave it a good clean and then gave it 2 coats of bees wax to protect it.
I then decided to only add a nice globe light bulb (65 w = 15w energy saving) mounted on a brass lamp holder with light switch. I suppose a lampshade could be added, but I think that because of the nice shape of the top of the can just the light bulb on its own sufficiently underlines and respects the overall form.
The can still retains its original imprinted Shell logos and writing on all sides.
