RETRO Flex Neck Desk Lamp with Fiberglassed Shade MCM/ Maple/Brass

Mid century modern meets Maple- Retro desk lamp with Brass base, flex neck, and Fiberglassed lamp shade.

We are very pleased to be able to offer, for your consideration, this very cool flex neck Retro desk lamp.

This desk lamp is kind of unusual, it seems a transitional piece in design. The elements seem to blend 1950 traditional Maple furniture style with the beginnings of Mid Century Modern design. It makes effective use of such modern elements as the flex tube in the neck, and the fiberglass reinforced plastic resin shade. But the shade goes back to the traditional with embedded leaf design. The Transitional styling makes this a funky, but cool desk lamp

The base of this lamp is stamped brass, and weighted. The base is 5 3/4 inches, and an 1 inch thick. The bottom half of the lamp stem is a turned 5 3/4 inch long piece of turned Maple, approximately 1 3/16 in diameter at it's middle, and tapering to 3/4 of an inch in diameter at the ends. Followed by the 6 1/2 inch long piece of flex tube with end fittings. The fiberglass shade is set into a brass conical cup. The cup and shade measure 6 1/2 inches at the opened end and taper to 2 inches in diameter. The switch is located at the rear of the brass shad cup. This lamp weighs approximately 2 pounds 14 ounces.

Condition- This lamp is overall good condition. We tested it and it works, but the switch is a bit sticky. The brass of the base has some very light corrosion, and the sides have a few small dings. The plating on the flex neck is showing some signs of wear. The shade cup shows some dulling and stippling in the finish, but this could be polished out. The fiberglass shade still looks good, but there are some superficial surface cracks characteristic of old fiber glass. You could fill some of these cracks with a thin super glue then reseal the shade with a light coat of clear acrylic.

This lamp reminds me of a 1950s version of the PIXAR animated deck lamp, it looks as though it should get up and hop around. It is such a cool blending of styles and transitions. It would look great in a mid century modern designed vacation cabin.
