These matching table lamps honor the legendary pair of cannons that helped the Republic of Texas win its independence from Mexico. Donated by the citizens of Ohio, the Twin Sisters fired the opening salvo at the Battle of San Jacinto.
The lamps prominently feature Texas Mesquite including an amazing specimen interwoven with holes left by beetle larvae. The Mesquite is further accented with Hard Maple and genuine Gaboon Ebony inlays. Appropriately, the Mesquite finials atop the lamps are artfully shaped as cannon balls launching from a muzzle.
Steel elements are hand hammered and carefully patinated to resemble vintage forging. The faux rawhide shades are crafted with suede stitching, silver plated conchos, and decorative leather rosettes.
The lamps are wired with high quality UL listed components including a heavy duty brass 3-way socket (rated 250w 250v) and a braided fabric covered copper wire cord. The bulbs are energy efficient 3-way LED (40/60/100w equivalent) with a 2700k warm white color.
The wood elements are finished with a European hardwax oil and hand rubbed to a velvet sheen. The steel patina is sealed and protected with satin nitrocellulose lacquer.
These one-of-a-kind heirloom quality luminaires were produced with meticulous attention to detail using the finest components available to create stunning works of functional art suitable for any setting.
