lamp (lighting devices)

Lamp made from a recycled milk tin. One of twelve lamps. This one has an image of people in a boat, in a landscape with palm trees. Instructions on the back are in English. The original product was prepared in Holland. The top section has become detached and looks like it may not be part of this lamp as the cylinder is too narrow to slot in.
