British designer Kate Harris may have been overshadowed by her male contemporaries, but she was second to none in originality. Her designs were featured in the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle including this expressive candle lamp. Its engineering is particularly clever - the tendril mechanism keeps the candle at a constant level so it doesn't overheat the glass shade.
