Talk about EGG-CELLENT lighting!! This is a stunning vintage large scale model V-1318 table lamp with a white frosted FABULOUS Italian glass egg-shaped sculptured globe by The Laurel Lamp Company! It is hand blown and elegant… stripped down to a simple, bare form with a metal base. When unlit the globe has a lovely, soft white frosted presence and when lit it gives off a warm amber glow almost as calming as the perfect evening sunset. This lamp is definitely what you need to set up just the right ambience to set the mood for that romantic dinner or to simply give a comforting, peaceful glow to your surroundings. It will be beautiful on a sofa or console table in your living room, on an accent table in your bedroom, or in any room that needs a welcoming, wonderful display of mid-century modern egg-straordinary presentation.
Laurel Lamp Company was founded by Max and Harold Weiss in Newark NJ and was active from 1946 until 1981. President Harold Weiss introduced the company to Murano Italian glass in 1971 and an overseas alliance was formed. They collaborated with many famed designers including Richard Barr and Pierre Cardin. By 1979 Laurel had showrooms in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, North Carolina, and Los Angeles. Mr. Weiss was the driving force behind the success of Laurel Lamp’s iconic designs. He passed away in 2014. There is limited information on the company however, there is a Laurel Lamp Foundation non-profit organization website, and their fixtures and lamps are sought after still today.
