This hand-hammered copper lamp was made by iconic Arts and Crafts metalsmith Dirk van Erp, who apprenticed under his father in the Netherlands before immigrating to America. Table lamps were a staple of the firm’s output, however, this elongated "oil lamp" is unusual in design, perhaps unique or one of very few.
