Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Impressively scaled mid-height floor lamp comprised of three pieces of milky-white glass. Designed by artist and theorist Bobo Piccoli for Fontana Arte in 1968, the "Regina," or "Queen," recalls an oversized chess piece that has been exquisitely crafted to surreal effect.

Lamp has been newly rewired for use in the US with 12 candelabra sockets. LED bulbs are recommended due to the high number of bulbs.
