Red Lampshade

Red Lampshade

11"ø, 7" drop
Plastic
HONG KONG

Discovered in the Red Lamp District: that is, all of Hong Kong! Every market stand, and many food stores, have a dozen or so of these lamps hanging in rows over their merch. The idea is the orangey light from the lamp makes all those foods look much fresher, and boy, were they right! This is like sporting yellow shades — everything just looks better in the light of a red lampshade from Hong Kong. Also called "Egg Lamps," as they apparently cast the most flattering light for the famous Hong Kong 1,000-year eggs.
