Alexander Lamont has been hard at work on a very special collection for the past 12 months, he calls it the “Scholar’s Collection”.

Every week for the next seven weeks he will introduce a new piece from the collection.

This weeks piece is the Nocturne Lantern.  This small table lantern evokes the opium dens of Saigon and Bangkok from the turn of the last century.  The piece emits  a rich broken light through the gold crystal dome that sits on a bronze base.  The moth motif, on the lantern, is hand carved from box wood and gilded. It sits against the lamp’s glow and is suspended by a silver chain that is countered by rutilated quartz beads.

The Scholar’s Collection receives it's inspiration from the objects collected and contemplated upon by the scholars of the Ming and Qing dynasty of China.  These small but powerful pieces of art, would sit in the palm of the hand, or dignify a table surface and be enjoyed for their craftsmanship and texture, as well as their beauty.

Each one of these pieces will be accompanied by an indigo gift box that will further the uniqueness of each piece.  The Collection will be available in the Alexander Lamont stores only.
