Although we are unsure of the actual age of this piece, we would suggest that it dates to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1940s. The polished steel gentleman and the opaline glass shade is striking on the eye. Elegant, beautifully made and quite the statement piece
The lamp is relatively weighty, yet the weight to the base allows the lamp to ‘free stand’. Added with it’s surface patination and a little rust, this piece would make a nice feature or mood light in ones home, and wouldn’t look out of place in any room..
We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the lamp is in really good shape. There are some tatty areas, some surface scuffs and abrasions and some rusty areas. We do not believe the current condition is detrimental to the look and feel, if anything it’s what adds to the charm of the lamp. Lastly, the glass shade is in perfect condition with no breaks or cracks. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
Please note : Although we are offering this piece in full working order, we haven’t PAT tested this our end
Also, bizarrely, the wire that leads to the plug goes underneath the lamp, yet there isn’t a hole for the lead to go (so essentially the lamp sits on top of it). Obviously the lamp still ‘free stands’ and there are ways around allowing the lamp to sit flush
