Ponta de Diamante Glass Candle Lampshade - Museu Nacional do Azulejo
Glass candle lampshade, inspired by a detail of a patterned azulejo panel known as Ponta de Diamante or diamond point, due to its central pyramid motif, in polychrome faience: blue and yellow on white.
Decorated alternately with diamond points and ovules, the use of light and shadow, light and dark, give this composition the illusion of volume. It is one of the best examples of Mannerist azulejos using classic motifs. In its Portuguese version it was applied between the years 1608 and 1639.
