Pair of 1970s American, swing-arm, chromed-metal, table lamps attributed to Walter Von Nessen because of their style and functionality. The circular base with smooth curved edges has a central supporting column rather than one to the side. The arm swings out to allow the light under the shade to be directed to where it’s required perhaps to light a book when reading or a particular object. When the arm is folded back on itself the shade sits exactly on top of the column which makes them perfect for bedside lamps as I have illustrated in the images. The lamps are well-made of polished chromed metal and the arms move perfectly. A single E27 screw-in bulb is required in each lamp which have been rewired by a professional electrician with a black flex. The black on/off switch is fitted along it. The bases are covered in felt to protect the surface which they are placed upon.
The shades are quite often more expensive to ship than their value and you’ll probably prefer to choose a different shape or colour to match your decor. I therefore ship without them and don’t include them in the cost.
In good condition with some age related scratches on the base.
Dimensions: Base Diameter: 19.5cm Arm Length: 15cm Arm Length Extended: 27cm Height to the Top of the Socket: 41cm Height to the top of the shade: 53cm
Base Diameter: 19.5 cm
