Lamp, Modern Forgery

Description

Lamp composed of very heavy grey baked clay. Its thick fabric and small perforation at the spout make it non-functional, and Hector Williams has determined that it is a fake. It has an African-like face between the hole in the centre and the spout, and is decorated with raised circles and radiating lines on the circumference.
