This gorgeous pair of vintage Faries trumpet-form uplights is a superb example of iconic American Art Deco design form & manufacture. Unlabeled, but most certainly designed by Bert Dickerson ca. 1938. During his tenure as Head Designer for Faries, Dickerson created many of the most iconic lighting designs of the American Art Deco & Machine Age era. Solid, round chromed steel bases ground these well- all the way up through their flared trumpet shades. A single lucite collar accents the neck of each lamp, below original steel switches, at base of trumpet shades. These clean, classic forms integrate beautifully with a broad range of design & decor settings- 20 C Modernist, Bauhaus, Mid Century Atomic, Regency, Contemporary Modern++. The original felted, under-base covers were removed when the lamps were rewired (by Lee Arts, in nyc) in the mid 70's & were not replaced/aren't present.
This surviving, original pair of fully working lamps is in incredible condition with less than age-commensurate appearance, w/no pitting, no rust, no discoloration. The Original chrome-plating is fully intact. Dealer priced for resale or a fantastic personal buy. Message questions & requests for detail images.
Width: 10.5" at base
Diameter: 13" across top
