Atomic Age Desk Lamp from the Burning Eames Era 1960s
Regular priceSale price
Here we have an Atomic Age gooseneck desk lamp that is on fire in more ways then one. Check out the lava like view from the fiberglass cone shade. That's not all. The base is all cast iron, even the stem base. And you top it off with patina everywhere, and I mean everywhere. You have the slash cracks on the inside and outside of the shade. The flaking white paint on the base with the metal sneaking through. And all is connected by the bruiser brass gooseneck. This vintage lamp went on an acid trip and never came back. Stone cold.
The bottom of the base is marked "WE", and the code "C943." Still researching this part. I believe the unusual lamp is from the 1960s, possibly 50s.
The cone shade light stands about 18" tall at normal stance, and about 20 1/2" tall fully extended. The slanted cast iron base has a 6" diameter, and stands about 1 1/4" inch from the ground. The cast iron stem measures 4", and the gooseneck measures about 12". As stated above, there is patina everywhere. Paint loss, grime, scratches, rust, and wear...everywhere. There are a few paint flakes on the base that are ready to depart from the lamp. The inside shade fastener was loose when I acquired the lamp. It tends to loosen if you're moving the shade around a lot.
The midcentury lamp works with the original wiring. It's worked fine for me. However, I always encourage people to do their own inspection and rewire if you so choose.

Imagine walking into your dark living room, office, or loft with only this bad boy lit. Warning: People may gather round the lamp and tell ghost stories.
