Architectural component from a roof gutter system has been upended and converted into a one-of-a-kind accent lamp.  In the world of roof plumbing, this is known as a leader head, conductor head or rainhead.  It captures rain water and an attached water spout carries it down to the ground and away from the structure foundation.  Leader heads of this size were used on large homes and commercial structures.  They are still manufactured for decorative applications.
