1950s California Modernist Fiberglass Floor or Table Lamp

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An creative use of Industrial Design materials for lighting from the early 1950s is this lamp constructed from a fiberglass cone and attached to a painted wooden tripod base. The fixture can be used either as a floor lamp or a large scale table piece. In all original condition with age related wear that is typical for a 60 year fixture. The fiberglass shade creates a soft glow when illuminated, this appears to be a one off piece by a unknown designer.
