Fabulous!! This vintage ranch oak floor lamp by A. Brandt is simply that…. FABULOUS! It is comprised of rustic solid ranch oak with a honey oak finish that is signature to A. Brandt Company furniture. Honey Oak can be identified by the tiny brown specks on the finish although we have not detected those brown specks in the finish of this piece which leads us to believe it was refinished at some point in its life. This floor lamp has a slender carved shaft with a manually adjustable angled arm that extends outward and holds the lamp shade. In the center of the lamp, there is a functional circular table held by a tri leg base. Perfect for a small space since no additional table is needed. Its simple rustic design gives it such versatility it could be placed in any room in your home, next to a lounge chair or in a sitting room. It would be wonderful in your western style cottage or traditional ranch home, but it could also add a softer touch to your industrial loft.
A Brandt Company was established in 1900 by German immigrant August Brandt. But it was Paul Brandt, August’s son, who engineered and debuted the Ranch Oak furniture in Fort Worth, Texas in 1938. Paul served as company president for approximately 50 years. The production of the Ranch Oak line continued until the mid-1980s. It was used in ranch homes, mountain homes, dude ranches, and basement rec rooms across the nation. The US government contracted Ranch Oak furnishings for many of their military bases. And it was used by National Park lodges plus roadside motels for its attractive, durable, rustic type of décor.
You must love this floor lamp as much as we do, you need to make it yours!
