Seller: legasse (135) 100%, Location: Melbourne, Victoria, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 253987669533 ebaylagarcon v2a MACHINE AGE CATALIN & CHROME ART DECO LAMP A stunning example of machine age design in this Art Deco table lamp. It shows off a highly modernistic base, with a very geometric and highly polished chrome footing, with chrome speed ring highlights up the stem and catalin bakelite sections and discs that seem to imitate saturn rings. The catalin components are in a gorgeous candy like transluscent yellow/tangerine bakelite! This coloured, hard catalin bakelite was commonly used in the 1930s for art deco jewelry due to it's ability to be transparent and take brilliant colours including marbling. It is highly reminiscent of Jupeterian storms with it's swirling patterns and is quite beautiful when the light hits it and glows through it. It then leads to a stepped gallery which holds an absolutely stunning Czech glass star shade with the same swirling yellows, a variety of oranges all together with the creamy white and darker ripples of hand blown glass. This is a thick heavy shade and it is also made with uranium glass, which can be seen with the black light as it glows a very bright electric green as seen in the photos. This piece has the original bakelite plug and inline switch in black bakelite. These display fine detail with streamline modern detail on the plug as well as the inline switch. As seen when lit up it is rather dramatic and provides quite an exotic light source especially when a black light is used. This is a fine example of Art Deco design that would make a fine addition to your interior decor and/or collection. • Disclaimer • With all electrical second hand times, please ensure it is tested by a qualified electrician before use. The lamp is in absolutely EXCELLENT condition. The chrome is bright and was replated for my collection. The bakelite switch and plug is in excellent and functional form. The catalin bakelite components are in excellent glossy condition with no damage. The glass shade is in excellent condition as seen no chips or cracks. A very evocative and great example of Art Deco.
