This large ornamental Georg Jensen lamp is a truly decorative masterpiece. The lamp takes a number of figures from nature and combines them into a new form; this merging of elements was typical of Georg Jensen’s work with flora and fauna. He removed the elements he found fascinating from their natural context and incorporated them in his designs, making them come alive.

The lamp is set on four feet (magnolia buds) and the base is circular with lobed sides which rise to the stem of the lamp. The middle section has a group of grape clusters and the socket is set in a fluted urn. The top is a ball that sits on top of another group of grape clusters. The flower bud was inspired by Japanese art, which uses the magnolia bud as a symbol of the month of May.

The surface of the lamp is covered with delicate hammer marks – a distinct Georg Jensen style - which softens the reflected light to create the greyish shimmer he associated with moonlight.
