Product Description

 Geckos can be characterized as shrewd and cunning, which requires intelligence and wit. This gecko is sharpening his education the old-fashioned way, with its nose in a book. Nothing but fun, this piece features a long, slender body with the strong, firm lines of the framed lamp shade creating this lizard's reading material. Body features a handmade wrought iron frame that is powder coated and then wrapped in abaca rope. Each lamp comes with approximately five feet of clear cord with a plug which extends from the base of the tail. Shade features a standard ul lamp backing with fossilized cocoa and guyabano leaves that are hand-placed and then laminated. The shade is handstitched onto a powder coated, wrought iron frame.
