I'm a NYC prop stylist who shops a lot & a collector of some very cool stuff. The result: I have a bunch of truly neat things to pass along to you.
Handsome & high end Italian halogen desk lamp circa 1980s/1990s in cream powder coat enameling & brass. The scale & silhouette are stunning--the lamp head swings way out over your work surface, and there is a dimmer for low lighting. The body is an enameled metal and the brass accents are exactly what's happening in design right now, though I know this lamp is vintage (it came from a very fancy Jay Spectre designed apartment on the upper east side. There is no mark for designer, though it's definitely a high end designer piece (it is marked made in Italy). The bulb is new, so it works just fine, and the light it gives off is focused and perfect for lighting up your desk top. The head of the lamp swivels sideways so you can bounce light onto a wall or turn the light away from your eyes. I wish I knew more about it because it's incredibly stylish, and will work with any number of antique or mid century pieces in your collection.
17-1/2" tall (overall height from table top)
27" Length (this is the length of the arm span from back of base to front of lamp head)
9" base diameter
13-1/2" height from table top to bottom of lamp head
6-1/4" dimeter (head of lamp with bulb)
Takes a 12 volt/ 50Watt bulb, included. The lamp is fine with the bulb turned all the way up to max lighting, but there is a faint buzzing sound when you dim the bulb. This is typical of halogen lamps and bulbs (it's the filament shaking). That said, it's in fine working order, it is just best when the light is brightest and the buzzing stops. There are numerous internet posts about this in regard to halogen lamps, so if you are wondering if I'm just making this up you can look and see. I remember in the 80s when halogen lamps were the major style statement, and the buzzing that we all just got used to. The body of the lamp is in great condition with minor wear to the brass and the base. Overall I would call it a 9 out of 10.
It's located in Williamsburg near the L at Montrose, Graham, & Lorimer, and the G at Metropolitan and Broadway, or the J,M,Z at Lorimer Street at Broadway. I'm around many days and most evenings to pass it off. I can deliver curbside in NYC for 10 bucks, though not to Staten Island (the huge tolls!). Email with any questions. Thanks, Chip
I can accept payment through KRRB, so if you want to pay with a card that is possible. Just ask. It’s a new program that KRRB is launching, and not all sellers are capable of taking payments, but I was an early adopter to KRRB and was selected to be part of the early Beta test rollout.
