MCM Nessen Style Gunnar Adolfson Swing Arm Lamp


Posted on Fri May 25 2018

Classic chrome swing arm desk lamp by Gunnar Adolfson, super similar to the Walter von Nessen swing arm that you have seen forever. This is more rare. Patented swing arm hardware helped me identify the maker, and the patents are all held since the 1930s (see link). Very modern and infinitely timeless, and will look fab in your office as a smart desk lamp. I have included a shade, though it is not the original shade. The base shows some wear (see images) but overall this lamp is in great vintage condition. 8-1/3” diam base 21-3/4” to bottom of fitting 15” arm swing spread 23-1/4" to top of shade
