The "Hurricane Vitruvian" brilliantly blends form and function in vintage brass finish with clear glass. At 46.5 cm tall and Ø 16 cm, this piece finds inspiration in Neoclassical aesthetics, sporting Vitruvian scrolls and laurel leaf swags reminiscent of the Louis XVI era. Beyond its decorative allure, the glass shade serves a practical purpose, guarding the candle's flame from unruly drafts. This hurricane lamp beautifully marries historical elegance with functional design, offering both style and utility to your space.


The Hurricane Vitruvian is inspired by a French candlestand (ca. 1770), or flambeau de jardin, with a shade at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. One of a pair, the original is crafted from gilt bronze and bears a glass shade for practical protection from drafts. The Vitruvian scrolls—an architectural wave pattern —and the laurel leaf swag—a type of garland—were popular in Neoclassical design, which was fashionable during the period of Louis XVI. Our elegant hurricane reproduction has been beautifully crafted in a vintage brass finish and clear glass.
