moreThough the Mad Men era has passed, you can still be the boss with this vintage 1950s Bakelite desk lamp. This large scale lamp is meant to illuminate your whole desk on a grand scale. The head swivels forward and back; a pen holder is attached to the base, and it turns on and off with very satisfying "Start" and "Off" buttons. The Bakelite is a chocolate black, and has developed a patina over the years, though a thorough restoration by the buyer would probably make it shine like new again.
There are a few scratches, dings, and areas of finish chipping (please reference the photos), but it's in overall good shape! It still works beautifully too. It measures 19" wide at the shade, and 17" tall.
A note from the seller: If you have any questions, or would like to see more photos, please send along a message. Be sure to check out our other vintage, antique, and modern items! less
