Capiz is an edible mollusk, a type of oyster.
Capiz shells were used ancient times in place of glass due to their translucence.
Capiz shells today have many uses in home decor and many industrial uses.

The Bouillotte lamp originated with an 18th century French card game called Bouillotte.
The card table was typically lighted by a cluster of burning candles surrounding a vertical rod upon which rested a lamp shade.
The base was tray shaped to hold the chips used in playing the Bouillotte game.
The Bouillotte shade is very unique, slightly tapered shallow drum shape.
Much like this vintage mid century Bouillotte capiz shell lamp above.
