Chrome Cylinder Lamp with Four Chrome Silvered Glass Globe Bulbs, 1970s


Extraordinary space age table lamp from the late 1960s early 1970s. Chrome plated steel cylinder 4 inches diameter with four standard Edison screw cap sockets below the top. Includes the four original custom 5 inch diameter glass globe bulbs which are completely chrome silvered. When switched off they appear as opaque mirrored chrome orbs. When the light is switched on from the 3 step cord switch (Off, On, High) the globes magically reveal their translucency. I have never seen these bulbs before. They may have been artisan made as there are no production markings. That they all still work is astonishing and is evidence of the practicability of producing a truly long-lasting incandescent lightbulb. Nonetheless we cannot guarantee that they will continue to function. Luckily a half-chrome bulb this same size is readily available on the market. We suggest you use Bulbrite 100G40HM Half Chrome 100W Globe Shape Bulb which are also 5 inches diameter.
