Photo Challenge: "What Is It....?"

Quite a few years ago I spotted this in my Mom's basement and I recalled how it had been in our house in Pakistan when we lived there. Since she didn't really have a place for it in her American home, I brought it to my house where it sits on my Pakistani tea cart in my living room. We have always said it's made out of camel bladder, but it's possible it's made out of camel skin. Skin or bladder, I love this lamp and the memories it evokes. Here  is a link that explains about the history and making of camel skin lamps.

Lovely. We had one also but I don't know what happened to it!
