1950s Table Lamp with Sculptural Base


This wonderful lamp from the 1950s has a beautiful ceramic base. The abstract form features a terrific mottled glaze and the shape reminds us of the sculptures of Isamu Noguchi and Henry Moore. Lamp is sold sans shade. The original shade shows age and use (discoloration and wear). We are happy to include it with the lamp should you want to have the wire frame recovered, or the shade replicated.
