'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 blue/green metal shade, chrome arm and round metal base. The lamp is in working order and has been re-wired to modern standards with a gold flex cable and a new chrome bulb holder to take a standard bayonet bulb.
The base of the lamp is approximately 6" (15cm) in diameter and the shade is 12 1/2" (32cm) in diameter. The lamp stands approximately 12 1/2" (32cm) 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 wear, paint loss and pitting on the metal parts and some tarnishing on the chrome but nothing detrimental. It has been lightly cleaned to retain its aged patina and overall it displays very well.
