1950/1960, the Netherlands

Material: Textiles, Wood

Beautiful vintage scissor lamp made of teak or rosewood.
The scissor / swivel lamp is a well-known item from everyday life in the 1950s and 1960s, which hung above the sofa as a shaded lamp in many living rooms.
The lamp is still in excellent condition after all these years, the lampshade shows some wear due to its age, which gives this lamp a true vintage look.

The arm measures 16 cm when folded, and can be extended up to a length of 32 cm. From wall plate to the outside of the shade is 40 cm.
Due to the ingenious mechanism, the lamp can be used in various positions.
The lampshade can be directed upward and downward, and can be fixed by means of a wing nut.

The size of the wall plate is 15.5 cm and the diameter of the shade is 19 cm and it is 12 cm high.
The control knob is situated on the wall plate.
The lamp has a large lamp holder, and comes without the light bulb.

The lamp will be carefully packaged and shipped registered with track and trace.
Pick-up is possible after consultation within four weeks of the auction date. Unless agreed otherwise, the property right of this lot becomes void after this period. The purchase price will not be reimbursed in this case.

  • Interesting design, excellent packaging, unfortunately lamp had broken internal part, which seller denies, and minor damages not shown on pictures. Was also dirty. Vintage doesn't have to mean sticky!
