This is a more unusual vintage 1970s desk lamp.
It a more unusual one - and looks good in a space-age interior.
The base is made of heavy black cast iron - and with a little white plastic press switch on the base - to turn the lamp on and off. From the circular base rises a chrome pole or upstand - and from this comes a hard plastic corrugated or fluted flexible neck section - rather like a moveable and poseable hose. You can ben and angle the direction of the shade from this section.
I love the shade on this lamp - it takes the form of a very shiny globe-shaped chrome ball - the bulb goes in the open base of the ball. The shade is in excellent condition with no rusting, pitting or scratches. It is a bit like a fish-eye mirror - and you can see your whole room reflected in it at a strange distorted angle.
Dimensions: The diameter of the base is 7 inches. The diameter to the shade at the widest is 6 1/2 inches. The height of the chrome upstand section is 16 inches. Overall height when fully stretched out is 23 inches.
There are no maker's names on this - but certainly a finely made vintage piece - it is a bit of a showstopper in your interior.
It is certainly a most substantial and large size desk or table lamp, and not a more flimsy department store one - no danger of this one toppling over. It works and you just need to plug it in. of course! It requires an ordinary size screw-in bulb.
Unpacked it is a stonking 3 kg - so UK postage only. Postage quoted will be for large size and heavy parcel sent to you with Parcelforce48.
A most unusual old lamp - and well made; Fair price for this special feature lamp - you won't be disappointed with it. I hope that my photographs do it justice.
