Tripod table lamp finished in lemon yellow, with brass details, 1950s.

The light is a very nice example of midcentury design, finished in lemon yellow enamel paint, with a white underside to the top. The central cone is held by three brass legs, and is pierced to allow the light to shine through the body, as well as reflect off the shade. The shade is held in place by three brass ball-shaped finials. We do not know the designer or maker of this piece; it is possibly German and the pierced detail brings to mind the designs of Ernst Igl (whose illuminated mirror we have listed separately), however the broad style and details are similar to those seen in Italian and French designs of the period. Overall for us this is a charming piece.

The light is in good original condition, with minor signs of wear in line with age and use. There is some slight distortion to the legs and the shade, and some signs of wear to both the brass and the paintwork; we have noted light scratches and one very small dent near the top of the cone - please see images. (Note image 4 is included to show the overall shape of the shade, but the colour is not representative.)

The lamp takes one large screw-fitting bulb, and we recommend a warm LED bulb to keep the heat down. You may need to replace the wiring to comply with your local standards or reflect your scheme. UK clients please contact us if you need help with this step.

Dimensions: H 38cm x Dia 31cm

The shade will be removed for shipping if required.
