Pair of Adjustable Steel and Glass Floor Lamps Attributed to Kurt Versen


Rare and unusual pair of telescoping brushed steel floor lamps with glass ball globe tops. The lamps each have three concentric tubular tubes which can be extended or condensed to adjust the height. Lamps in totally extended position 70 inch H x lower position 40 inch H (includes 11 inch diameter globe) bases 12 inch diameter. The globes are white, rimless neck glass and are in perfect condition, the bases are in very good condition, showing some cosmetic wear to the finish at the base, as shown. Both feature an on line on/off foot switch, which are working but show cosmetic wear to finish. I recommend using the wall socket and light switch for ease of use rather than the foot switch. The ball shades are held in place by metal elements which screw closed to secure the glass globe tops. Lamps are fitted with porcelain sockets, and accept standard screw in incandescent bulbs, I recommend 60/80W max wattage. We have not been able to document this form, and have attributed the design to Kurt Versen, however they could be Von Nessen, Mayan or another maker. Important, stylish, chic and Modern, floor lamps, selling and priced as a pair.
