Background Info and Provenance

A GOOD-SIZED cut crystal table lamp (21cm high by 16cm) from the art deco period- c.1940’s. This is likely to be Bohemian / Czechoslovakian. These lamps are an icon of the era and ideal in any home. From a distance, they’re barely noticeable against white, just a twinkle in the background making them perfect in a minimalist designer interior, up closer they’re captivating and at night they look amazing when switched on giving the room a stunning ambience. They cast patterned shadows on the walls.

I first bought one of these lamps years ago to sell in my store but after I had it awhile, I couldn’t bring myself to sell it. These days I always have one of these at home- I love them.

This lamp is a 1940’s deco original. Its heavy cut crystal- the power cord was recently upgraded to include an in-line switch. These were made before the in-line switch technology was invented so you had to switch them on and off at the wall. This upgrade makes the piece more functional and practical.

These lamps are a great investment. Although times (and interiors) have changed they still attract attention and are highly sought-after by people in all different homes from chic minimalist through to period homes with dark timber and regal colours like maroon and gold. If you look after this piece it will continue to be passed onto future generations. After other lamps have ended up as landfill, this piece will still stand apart- a symbol that when something has been done well, it will live on. There are few better ways to invest in your home and reduce your carbon footprint. (How does buying something like this reduce your carbon footprint? … Recycling what we already have is our only way out of this mess!)

This lamp is in excellent condition for its age. The cord was recently upgraded to include an in-line switch. This lamp works well (as shown in the photos and I’ve used it at home for about 6 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 obviously shows minor signs of use but nothing that warrants a mention. __________ Measurements-Total height- 21cm. 16cm across at its widest. Weight- 1.2kg. It’s a good size for these lamps. 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- around $24 - $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 polluting our earth. 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.
We accept DIRECT BANK DEPOSIT. We send photographic ID of the store owner (Michael Grealy) to all customers at the point of sale, along with media articles about iNVISeDGE with photos of Michael Grealy in them (most of these articles are about 10 years old). Your payment will be paid into an Australian ANZ bank account under the name Michael Grealy (or iNVISeDGE).

Additionally please be aware that in Australia ALL consumers are protected BY LAW if the goods or services they buy are not as described. (But this should be of no concern- in our first 15 years of trading we have over 1150 positive ebay feedback comments and ZERO negative feedback comments.) ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ On occasions a DIRECT BANK DEPOSIT can be made at the time of collection. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ On occasions CASH payment when you collect your item may also be available. Confirm prior to purchase if you need this. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Other payment methods are available but problematic and may incur additional fees. Tell us prior to purchase if you are unable to feel 100% confident with our trading history and payment methods so we can negotiate something else with you.
