THE MATHILDE BLOUSE LAMP is made from a 1930s French sleeveless lace blouse. The front of the blouse is made from Guipure lace with pearl buttons, the sides from silk net and the back from thin silk mousseline. It must have been a beloved blouse because it is has been meticulously mended. The blouse is dipped in 24k gold.
