This is a circa late 1950's Nessen table lamp in original very good condition.
Nessen Studios was founded by Walter Von Nessen, an iconic designer of Art Deco and Early Mid-Century Modern lighting and home goods, and the inventor of the now ubiquitous swivel arm for lamps. His work is represented in modernist collections and museums around the world.
This lamp is in very good overall used condition with amazingly bright and clean chrome and white paint, but is missing its top diffuser (easy to make), and has no felt on the bottom. This lamp has a single standard socket and a harp to hold up the shade.
The original shade backing does have cracks and discoloring, and the fabric itself has some small deformation but is otherwise in good condition.
This is a rare opportunity to own a circa 1950's modernist designed lamp in very good condition.
The lamp uses one standard base bulb - we always recommend using energy efficient and cool operating LED bulbs.
18.5" High x 14" Wide (shade).
