This is a fine German Art Deco Glass Lamp designed by Karl Weidermann.
It dates to around the 1930s and was made by WMF in Germany.
It is known as an Ikora Lamp.
This one is in excellent damage free condition.
It is of bulbous or globular shape - with a very attractive crackle glass finish - the main body colour is a dark claret-red colour - with ochre yellow mottled colours - with bits of green-blue shades within.
On top - is the original chrome lamp fitting (the bulb holder is a new replacement one so that we could earth the fitment for safety (to conform with modern standards).
The electric flex attaches (as originally designed) to the chrome collar of the lamp, as photographed - and the lamp is turned on and off with the finger switch on the bulb holder.
The impressed WMF mark is on the chrome fitting: WMF IKORA - and even has its original paper label on the base: Made in Germany
It does not come with a shade - but should be easy for you to source an appropriate shade to your own taste.
There is a fitting and also a light bulb inside the glass base section - and this works as photographed. You can access this by removing the screws on the chrome flitting.
Dimensions: The height from base to the chrome fitting on the neck level is 6 3/4 inches (17 cm). The diameter at the widest is 6 inches (15 cm).
The weight unpacked is 1.6 kg (it is thickly cased glass).
It has been re-wired and comes with 3 metres of old gold cloth three core cable. Fully earthed and ready to use.
These original WMF lamps are now highly sought after - and often you might find only the glass body section without any of the chrome fittings. It certainly looks amazing all lit up inside with a rich glow and with the more usual bulb on top.
