SL-Mid-Century Modern Smoke Gray/Grey Lucite and Chrome Table Lamp
Grey or gray or smoke? Lucite or plexiglass or acrylic? Whichever way you spell it or whatever you call it, this Mid-Century Modern lamp is fabulous. The body of the lamp consists of two pieces of bent Lucite which form four bowed wings mounted on a round chrome base surrounding a chrome cylindrical shaft. In the middle of each of the two folded spline of plexiglass are chrome candle bases, each a different height, which hold a candelabra bulb. We have added a new gray tweed-ish semi-drum lamp shade. You may turn on just the accent candelabra bulbs, just the main lamp bulb or both. The total effect is awesome. The lamp is in wonderful vintage condition, however not without any hints of use. There are minute cracks in the Lucite where the screws go through to attach it to the chrome shaft small scratches to the Lucite which look much worse in the photos than in person; and, someone during this great lamps life used a bulb in the candle bases with too high wattage and caused a slight ripple to the Lucite as well. None of these are noticeable except upon close inspection.
