This an absolutely stunning vintage table lamp complete with its original shade.
The main body of the lamp is cylindrical in shape is is made of metal.
The body has a brushed matt gold finished to the metal and is in excellent vintage condition with no nasty scratches or dents.
The main tubular section measures 10 1/4 inches in height and has a diameter of four inches.
There is a central gold pole issuing from the centre of the base and this upstand contains the original rbass bulb holder and finger switch on the holder. It is fully earthed.
The shade is original to the lamp and it echoes near perfectly the colours in the lamp base. The shade is made of a rigid plastic material (main colour with beige with more shiny copper-gold horizontal stripes).
The decoration on the exterior of the shade appears to be made of fine strands of copper wire making a decorative striped pattern - as photographed. The shade has an insert inside (again original to the lamp and this acts as an internal light diffuser which prevents the light from the bulb going down - and all the light comes out of the top. The diffuser is removable if you want the light also going downwards - a strange thing .. never seen something like this on a vintage table lamp before.
The lampshade is also in good condition - and it is indeed very rare to find a lamp about 50 years old in such lovely condition and all original.
You would use a modern (probably low-heat) bayonet bulb with this lamp. It has about 2 metres of flex on it - original cable and original plug - all quite safe - but with anything electrical - get someone to give it a wee once over for you before using.
Perfectly clean and not grubby or smelly in any way. There are no maker's names or marks on with the lamp or shade -
Dimensions: the overall height is 19 inches. The height of the shade is 6 inches and with a diameter of 11 3/4 inches.
Weight unpacked is 1.7 kg.
A totally fabulous vintage lamp with will be a special "talking point" in any classic mid-century modern interior - I can image it on a sophisticated piece of Scandi-modern furniture in a bedroom or living room. It is a rare survivor - and you certainly won't find another like it - the unique design and the fine condition is reflected in my asking price.
Sadly - it would have to be sent to UK addresses only. The price quoted here is for Parcelforce48 - tracked and signed for postage.
