Luxury Design, Past & Present
Offered is this pair of articulated Italian chrome desk lamps.
This is a very significant pair of lamps, quality made in Italy, circa 1950s-1960s. Made of chrome plated brass, wit the exception of the heavy iron bases. Construction is difficult to precisely explain, but check the photos to get a perfect idea of how they look with the spacers and knurled thumb-wheels. The reflectors are finished white on the interior.
Measurements: Extended straight up - 32" overall Reflector head - 11-1/8"W Base - 9-1/2"W Each of the 2 arm sections is about 12"L
Weight: About 15 pounds each
They are offered as we found them. Somewhere along the line, the screws that hold the lamp-heads were replaced, and there are some scratches in the chrome at that point (see last photo with red arrows). Overall, the chrome finish is in very good condition, could use a little light buffing, as expected. The iron bases have some stains on the stippled black finish, as seen in photos. The blue felt bottoms are original and intact, along with the labels.
