A pair of Mid-Century brass and black metal double-coned lamp bases
A very stylish pair of Mid-Century brass and black metal lamp stands with distinctive conical bases, possibly of German origin and probably dating from the 1950s. Each lamp stands features a larger black metal cone base housing the push-button switch, with a brass vertical, and then a smaller inverted cone leading to the brass bulb holder. All in all, a very unusual and eye-catching design.
The stands have a removable base for access to the wiring. This is important to note, as these require some additional work to make them usable. They are sold “as is”. Each measures approximately 22cm (8¾ in.) in height from the base to the bulb holder, with the bases having a diameter of just under 10cm (4 in.). The lower cone has a height of 8.5cm (3¼ in.) whilst the upper cone is slightly bigger at 9.5cm (8¾ in.)
Please note, due to the nature of these items and their “as found” condition, it is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure that they are rewired and safety checked prior to use.
