'Flying Saucer' Desk Lamp
Mid 20th Century
A fantastic midcentury modern 'flying saucer' style desk lamp dating from the mid 20th century. Its eye catching design features a large gold metal shade, chrome arm and round metal base. The arm is adjustable and the angle of the shade is also adjustable. The lamp is in working order and has been re-wired to modern standards with a gold flex cable and a new bulb holder to take a standard bayonet bulb.
The base of the lamp is approximately 7" (18cm) in diameter and the shade is 10" (26cm) in diameter. The lamp stands approximately 15" (38cm) tall. Ideal size for use as a desk lamp or on a side table. A real statement piece.
There are general signs of age and use, some paint loss and pitting and tarnishing on the metal parts and some dents in the shade but overall it displays well. It has been lightly cleaned to retain its aged patina and is ready for use.
