Bekannte Tischlampe

This American art deco reading lamp was designed in the 1930’s by the industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes (1893 – 1958) for the Faries Manufacturing Company of Decatur, Illinois.  Called “The Cobra Lamp” and made of stunning polished copper, the lamp has a unique reflector shade which hides the bulb and causes the light to shine up and be reflected down from the white underside of the shade.  The arrangement makes for a superb reading lamp without the glare of the bulb.  The lamp has been polished, coated with clear lacquer and rewired.  It measures 12” high and 11” diameter.
