A new renaissance was happening in the postwarperiod, a whole new generation was breaking away from the past. In lighting, names like Gio Ponti and Gino Sarfatti became well known among the design community and the Italians were largely responsible for the movement in America from traditional lamps to modern lamps with "goose necks" and conical aluminum shades. Gino Sarfatti's wall and ceiling mounted "outrageous" goose neck designs from the early forties actually set the tone for the next two decades.
A house was not a modern home without at least one goose neck lamp somewhere! This goose neck design places plentiful light where desired.
A switch on the shade turns the lamp on or off. This was a high-end piece with marble, birch wood accent and brushed copper. It would be perfect for a desk, den or credenza. This lamp dates to the fifties and was likely an Italian import and attributed to Raymor. Some minor scratches and typical wear throughout.This lamp is sensational and would look superb in your NY penthouse, CA atomic ranch or Florida retreat! G O R G E O U S I L L U M I N A T I O N.
