Midcentury "Ball" Table Lamp in Chrome Documented by Karl Springer

$4,975

About

This stunning Mid-Century Modern chrome "Ball" table lamp was realized by the illustrious American designer Karl Springer, circa 1980. Two demi-spheres of polished chrome meet at an equatorial center line to create a perfect orb of lustrous chrome. The lamp comes fitted polished chrome finial and ball-pulls that reiterate the spherical form of the body in miniature. Refined, austere and full of verve, this piece embodies the qualities that discerning enthusiasts of late midcentury modernism (and Karl Springer specifically) adore. It is fitted with a custom linen shade and has been completely rewired. The table lamp accommodates two Edison based bulbs providing up to 200 watts of light. Excellent condition. American, circa 1980. Measures: 31" high, 16" diameter.
