Scandinavian Functionalist Table Lamp in Checkered Glass, 1950s

US$465.91

About

Small and unusual table light with a checkered glass shade and an aluminium base. These type of lights originally went under names as restaurant lamps or 'Dating lamps' and was intended to replace the candlesticks under dim lighting. It was made in Scandinavia during the 1940s or 1950s by an unidentified maker. Hence we are not sure whether or not the shade has been replaced at some point.
