Rare American Art Deco Chrome Ocean Liner Bar/Railway Club Car Lamp/Ashtray

$1,550

About

This rare American Art Deco twin shaded chrome table lamp was designed to give discreet illumination to cocktail tables in railway club cars or on ocean liner cocktail bars. It has a low center of gravity, heavy base and an extra hole in the underside to allow it to be bolted to a table. These features all combine to prevent the lamp/ashtray from sliding off a surface when the train/ship is in motion. The base of the lamp is in the form of a dish mounted on four spherical feet and is designed to hold Silica Sand to act as an ashtray. The shaft of the lamp is a thick chrome tube that supports a three armed aluminum harp that in turn supports twin chrome shades topped with a spherical chrome finial. The lamp has been rewired but retains its original gold painted Bakelite turn switch and, save for some light spotting to the floor of the ashtray, the piece is in amazing condition.
