Colossal Mid-Century brass desk or table lamps with cigar brown leather shades, reminiscent of Charlotte Perriand's leather strap chairs. Large size at 27 inches tall and with fine details like skillful leather stitching and brass push switches. These are a robust and stately pair for the office or home.
Height: 27 in. (69 cm)
Diameter: 19 in. (48 cm)
Attention to details, even in the most discreet places.
The quality of the build of these pieces indicate that they were manufactured for important people. The switches in solid brass are by themselves masterpieces of design and fabrication. Every piece was specially made for this lamp, rare. The tension system of the leather shades is genius, keeping the leather tense through dilatation of temperature and humidity changes. The leather feels softer than leather gloves. The massive brass tulip bases float on hidden feet under the base, themselves covered with rubber for stability.
A rare masterpiece in amazing condition
