Vintage 1950s B.O.E. Pale Blue/Grey Wing Desk Tube Lamp


A classic 1950s era desk lamp with a fluorescent tube bulb and suitably retro shape and colour, a pale grey which has a hint of blue to it in certain lights with white square switch and shade interior. The base also provides room for some detailing which has an automotive  or aeronautic feel to it. The partial gooseneck allows for adjustment of the wing which sits at a practical height for desk work or more subtle lighting.

Made by B.O.E. the lamp is in good vintage condition. There are minor superficial imperfections to both the shade and the base and blemishes to the paintwork, but overall it’s cosmetically sound considering its age. Most importantly, that precious wing hasn’t suffered any deformations or dents!

The lamp in normal use stands at approximately 35cm (14 in.) high with the solid part of the neck and base making up about 17cm (6¾ in,) of that. The wing measures approximately 40cm (16 in.) across with a depth of 9cm (3½ in.). The tube is a standard T4 or T5 diameter with bipin (two pin) connectors.
