$268.00 $335.00

The desk lamp is in good vintage condition. It is in great working condition. The bulb in the lamp is working. However, if upon arrival the bulb does not work then it could be that the shipping jarred something loose inside the bulb. The front of the lamp hood will swivel or tilt upward or downward. The hood moves up and down very easily. The base has green felt that is a little loose on the edge but still intact. The green felt has a cardboard-like backing. The cord is in great condition. The red button turns the lamp on. The black button turns the lamp off. The front of the hood has a large discolored spot that looks to be the previous location of a sticker.

There are no cracks, breaks, or repair marks on this desk lamp that we can find. The metal is not dented or dinged. However, there are vintage wear and rub marks on the desk lamp. There is a colorless place on the base just above the buttons where color is missing. The darker spots on the piece are not grease or dirt but a developing patina. There is a little of what looks to be a tad bit of surface patina or a little spot of rust around the edge of the lamp hood.

The decorative possibilities for this lamp are many. This desk lamp seems to have all of the vintage to Mid Century looks that can be desired. The industrial color with a developing patina, the gorgeous style of the twin column-like posts for the lamp hood, the art deco rolled base and hood all work together to make this one stunning industrial decoration. The goldish copper color will draw the attention of many friends and family.

The collector will appreciate this piece for its gorgeous style and beautiful developing patina.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you insure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***Items that use bulbs such as lamps or lighting fixtures may be shipped with the current bulb that was already in the treasure. However, the bulbs are not guaranteed. We are simply sending them to make it easier to use for the first time and find replacements in the future.

***The manufacture or year-it-was-made is an estimate based upon experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I am very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. If you see a questionable mark that is not in the description on an item you are interested in please contact me.

***Please note that since we offer free shipping in the United States, the actual first Shipping costs incurred due to the transaction from the seller to the buyer will be deducted from any returned and/or refundable purchases with the exception of missing items, damages from shipping, listing, and/or condition errors, along with full compliance of Etsy return and refund standards.
