Black & Brass Modernist Table Lamp
Italy, Circa 1950
A sleek Modernist table light in polished brass and black lacquer, designed and made in Italy, circa 1950.
A ball and socket joint behind the biomorphic shaped head of the light allows the light to be point in any direction.
Further, the lamp can also be manipulated thanks to a second ball and socket joint in the central upwards stem.
To move the top half of the light around this joint there is a satisfying handle incorporated into the arm of the light which runs perpendicular to the upwards stem.
The slender proportions of the light makes it ideal for use on a number of surfaces; by the side of a bed, on a side table in a living room or on a console table in an entrance/hallway.
The patinated and mottled surface of the yellow brass contrasts excellently with the mat black laquer on the shade and base of the light.
Rewired for the UK using a gold coloured braided flex and in overall excellent vintage condition.
