Danish Mid-Century Modern Teak Lamp
This unique Scandinavian lamp, circa 1960s, was purchased from Peter and Penny Jones of Penny Toys at a recent Pier Show in Manhattan. (Penny Toys is a leading dealer in mid-century and modern decorative arts, and a regular at the pier shows in New York city.) Condition is excellent. Maker is unknown and there are no hallmarks on the exterior. Felt-covered underside. Measures 41" by 10" by 10" and weighs 8 lbs. This lamp features two sockets and a three-way mechanism. (Please see below for images of its appearance at each setting.) Made with four frosted translucent plastic panels and four narrow bands of mahogany, with brass hardware accents at the top. This is an excellent example of mid-century Scandinavian design, and likely comes from Sweden, Finland, or Norway.
