for sale is a vintage mid-century modern floor lamp by Bretford mfg of Franklin Park, Illinois. lamp is amazingly scalable. height is adjusted by pressing a small lever on steel pole connected to weighted base. extension of the shade is controlled by a knob mounted on chrome connector. Bretford mfg is anomaly: having started in post-WWII 1948, they are in business to this day. the lamp has been thoroughly cleaned up and rewired. original switch. vintage plug. our favorite part about the lamp is how light it is, pun intended. we also love the look of steel, off-white and grey cloth-covered wire. diameter of the base is 14 1/2 inches, shade diameter measures at 7 1/2 inches. lamp goes from 38 to an impressive 64 1/2 inches tall.
