Vtg Mid Century Modern Lightolier Brass Orb Decorator Lamps Gerald Thurston? Up for sale is an Awesome Pair of Mid Century Modern 1950's-60's Lightolier Wood and Brass Orb table Lamps possibly designed by Gerald Thurston. This high style pair of decorator lamps even has the original plastic reflector shades on the top.
The forms and modernist lines of these lamps are highly desirable and I can say that I have never seen this style in my time in the business nor in my research. The Orb like Brass Forms at the top are classic modern design and the sculpted shape is remarkable. These lamps are in good vintage condition with some areas of concern. The back of the wooden center shaft on one of the lamps has some dark spots as pictured.There is some minor age appropriate wear in certain spots to the brass orbs but nothing substantial as they are still very clean. Some paint loss at the top of the lamps and one of the reflector shades does have damage but is almost impossible to see when attached.
Many of these areas I have pointed out are age appropriate and should be expected from a pair of lamps over 50-60 years old. This still does not take away from the beauty and the rarity of these lamps. 33.5"h to the top of the white reflectors and the base is 6.75"x6.75. Also, one of the light switches does not seem to catch properly although both lights do work. I have added many pictures so that you can get the best idea of their beauty and condition.
Please supersize the pictures for some outstanding closeups. As with all of our lighting each fixture is in working condition as seen in the pictures but I would personally suggest getting the item checked by a professional before installing in your home. We are not responsible for any electrical issues that may arise. Thank you and good luck! Don't forget to check out our other auctions for more great deals!
