My objective is to send you a unique, truely handmade, authentic product from the Mediterranean with a reasonable cost. So please read the next three pharagraphs carefully before making a decision.
I work with selected farmers who water calabash excessively (the main material) and feed them with goat based fertilisers so that they grow up strong and thick. But when it comes to shipping, they are delicate, fragile and sensitive.
I warranty a free replacement if you receive broken or damaged. So I box them properly with great protection. It becomes a box approximately 24x16x16 inh. This box will travel 2 continents, change several planes, go through customs.
Most shipping companies ask unbelievable amounts to carry this box to you in 5-7 days. Sometimes the shipping cost exceed the price of the product.
So I deliver only with USPS who will carry this with a reasonable price. But It will take 2-3 weeks. So please note that from the beginning please.
I don't supply a base with this lamp shade. Because it only brings cost. Not only as a part of the product, but also as added shipping cost. If I was to provide a base with a suitable socket for your power supply, I would need to bring one from your country to send back to you. This only increase the cost. You possibly have a lamp at home or can get one fom your local hardware easily.
Appxy 14-18 inc tall, a diameter of 15-17 inc. But please keep in mind that each calabash is unique by creation. I promise you same design, same dimensions but can't promise exactly the same calabash.
We make personalised gourd lamps and wholesale enquiries welcome.
