1950's Italian Articulating Desk Lamp

$2,350

About

1950's Italian articulating desk lamp made of hefty solid brass and enameled steel reflector. The articulation is controlled by turning the key on the brass ball swivel joint between the double brass cones of the lamp stem. Range of movement is approximately 200 degrees. Newly rewired for US including new electrical cord with cord switch and two E12 sockets for candelabra size lightbulbs up to 60 watts each. A few marks to the brass base which is weighted inside with a cast iron disk. The enamel on the shade is original with some chips and losses to finish. We can re-enamel in the color of your choice. Handsome and playful design allows for casting dramatic shadows.
