Item: For your consideration we are presenting for sale a vintage atomic era table lamp that dates back to the 1950s. Reminds us of a trident. The body of the lamp is brass, and it contains three fiberglass shades that are set at slightly different heights. They are set in place by being threaded to the exterior of the light sockets.The shades are each angled at the top (see photos). They are beige in color, and each has black and gold brush stroke patterns on them. The base of the lamp contains a rotary knob switch which allows for three-way functionality: either one shade can be lit, or with a second twist the other two shades, and a third twist allows for all three to light up at once. We are uncertain as to the maker as the lamp does not appear to be marked. A fabulous lamp that'll make a welcome addition to any mid century modern interior setting!
33" tall to the top of the uppermost shade, 31" to the top of the middle shade, and 29 to the top of the lowest shade. With the shades attached, the lamp measures approx. The round brass base measures approx. Condition: Overall the lamp is in good vintage condition. The brass rods show a nice patina that is commensurate with age.The round metal brass base shows signs of tarnishing throughout (see photos) - we have not attempted to clean or polish them lamp in any manner. The fiberglass shades are all in excellent condition - there are no creases, breaks, bends, punctures, burn marks, etc. The lacing appears to be intact on all three shades.
The electrical wiring looks to have been replaced at one point in time, and is in great shape - no frays, splits, exposed and/or brittle wires. The lamp is in fully-functioning, working condition.As with all vintage lighting, we always recommend having the wiring checked by a licensed professional prior to long-term use. Please ask them and we will respond back to you in a timely manner. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Lamps, Lighting\Lamps". The seller is "oddmidmod" and is located in this country: US.
