This lamp SOLD through the iNVISeDGE website for AU$319 back in 2013. Today in 2020 I’d price the exact same lamp at AU$350. NOTE- our prices are in AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS which is significantly LESS in AMERICAN DOLLARS. Keep following our NEWLY LISTED Category for our new finds.
Background Info and Provenance
A nude lady table lamp from the art deco period. This an AUTHENTIC ART DECO piece- made around the 1940’s (GUARANTEED). Every aspect of its construction confirms its original. There have been copies done of this iconic design- obviously the originals provide very strong investment appeal. If this design is still popular over 60 years later the appeal will be everlasting. Values of these should increase with inflation and probably beyond inflation as they will only get harder to buy as the years pass. The mottled-textured glass from the 1940’s is distinctive of that era and is getting increasingly hard to get. This deco pane of glass strengthens the investment appeal of this antique piece.
The lamp-base is cast metal. I’m not sure what the metal is. It appears to be silver-plated as it shows green aging. This piece would polish up easily in a few minutes but I love the aged appearance so have left it as is. The plug and cord is the same as other deco lamps I’ve had in the past. Also the light fitting section is bakerlite which went out of production in the 1940’s or 50’s.
I love the presence of this lamp. It certainly gets attention and its deco provenance is obvious the second you look at it. There are similar pieces around but many look cheap. (Interestingly the copies are not that cheap to buy). This is the real deal- the quality is brilliant. Look at it 60-odd years on.
This piece will be passed on from one generation to the next. After most modern pieces have ended up in the bin this piece will still be doing what it was designed to do. There are very few better ways to invest in your home and in the environment.
This lamp is in excellent condition for its age. The cord and plug both work well and are in excellent condition. This lamp works well (as shown in the photos and I’ve used it at home for a few months). Because it’s used, I need to state for legal reasons that it’s a condition of purchase you have it checked by a qualified electrician prior to use. The crystal sections are about 70 years old but present very well. The crystal may show minor signs of use but nothing is noticeable at all or effects the display of this beautiful piece. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Measurements. Total height- 27cm. 12cm across at its widest. Weight- 1.21kg. It’s an above average height for these lamps- probably the tallest one I've had. Read my 1200+ eBay feedback comments (ALL for vintage furniture/decorative arts SALES) to be assured that I strive to describe all my items as accurately as possible and will only stock items in excellent condition.
PICK-UP . . . from 30 or 40 minutes North of BRISBANE city is accepted but postage is preferred as my home is hard to find. Because of this I will nominate a friend or family member for you to collect the item from if you need collection. Pick-up in person must be worked out prior to purchase- thank you. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
POSTAGE is offered internationally. All our Decorative Arts pieces are delivered through AUSTRALIA POST. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ POSTAGE ESTIMATES. . . . ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ To BRISBANE- most of our pieces cost $15 - $18 to send. . . To SYDNEY or MELBOURNE- Small Vase- around $20 - $23, Medium Vase- around $20 - $25, Large Vase or Medium Table Lamp- around $25 - $30. Let us know if you need an EXACT COST for postage prior to purchase. The above postage estimates INCLUDE $2.95 for a signature on delivery. . . INSURANCE against being lost or broken in transit up to the value of $200 is included in the estimates above. If your vase is cheaper or more expensive than $200 this will effect your postage fee slightly. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A BOXING FEE of $3.00 is included in the fee above to cover the cost of searching for and storing used packing materials. With the millions of cardboard boxes that end up as landfill every year we don’t believe in supporting the manufacture of boxes for post. Instead of buying new boxes and packing materials and passing this cost onto our customers we spend considerable time sourcing used boxes and then fashioning boxes to fit each item. We do the same for bubble-wrap and foam pieces. This requires a large investment of time, energy, ingenuity, organization and storage space- it is much easier and cheaper to buy new packing materials but I can’t justify taking the easy way out when so much packing material ends up as landfill every day. Our $3.00 charge does little to pay for the time (and storage) needed do this and to pack your item (there is also the time needed to get your package to the post office). This is something we’re happy to do for our customers and the environment. We appreciate your support in this area.
