Pure Brass Floor Light
Denmark, Circa 1950
Description:A vintage floor light designed and made in Denmark around 1950. The lamp is made entirely of brass and its form is as simple as its material.
The light is made up of four simple sections; an idiosyncratic 'crow’s foot' base, a thick central shaft, a tiny more slender pole and -connecting the aforementioned sections- a decorative collar. The restraint nature of the piece and its excellent balance results in a visually calm design that really only allows its materials to speak. For this reason, the brass has been left with its warm-coloured and even patina, built up over 70+ years.
The light is available with either of the newly made lampshades photographed. Both the forest green and mid-night blue lamp shades contrast brilliantly with the warm characterful brass. Completely re-wired to UK standards and in excellent vintage condition.
