Does not contain shade or finial. 1951 - Green Striped Twist. This has to be one of the rarest of the mid century, atomic age table lamps! BALC produced awesome and outrageous lamp designs in the late forties and early fifties.
Very low production numbers make this one of the scarcest of the googie design houses of the period that sprung up in and around California and which carved a unique path during the modern movement to create California Modern. Here is a twisting and turning, pinstriped design that is pure eye candy! The curves, lines, textures, and use of space make this lamp the personification of the mid century modernism design ethos. It is a work of art, first - and a lamp second! Was unique in that they were a custom order house that advertised in magazines like House & Garden, Better Homes & Gardens and House Beautiful in the forties and fifties.
We've never seen another like this one. It may be the last of its kind.
