Catalogue Note

The original table lamp designed by George Nakashima for the study was slightly larger and had a shoji shade and a burl base.  However, Evelyn asked that the replacement be made slightly smaller and more to scale with the study.  The second lamp employs an "Asa-no-ha" shade first designed in the 1970s by George Nakashima for a show in Japan and made there by local craftsmen.
