DESCRIPTION:

I am sure you will agree that my Vintage Stacked Acrylic Lamp wins the Goldilocks award for edginess--not too tame, not too edgy, but just edgy enough! Signed buy its designer, it is thought to have been produced in the 1970s. Substantial in weight but not overly large, its alternating, stacked acrylic squares provide negative space & luminosity to keep this lamp visually "light" and interesting.


Qualifying as one of my “101's,” this wonderful lamp will be perfect in at least 101 spots around your home, apartment, or office! Perfect for your desk at home or at the office. Just right on your bedroom dresser or the chest in your entry. On your taller side table or night stand, it would be fabulous. It would be an edgy, sophisticated touch in your teen’s room. Picture it on your bathroom vanity or in the wet bar or… You get the picture!

The lamp was hand-signed by its designer/creator (see the last photo). It appears to be Omir 9. I have researched extensively and have not been able to find any info on an artist or lamp designer by this name. Further, the lamp was given a "copyleft" registration. Copyleft registration was developed in the 1970s and is the precursor to Creative Commons designation, among other similar designations, which allows a creative work to be shared with others for their use and possible modification. Since I have not been able to find any information on the designer of this lamp, it is unclear if the Copyleft registration is intended for the signed parts of the lamp or the whole lamp. It's construction would indicate that it was commercially manufactured so it may be that Omir designed his lamp for a company and retained some of his rights, planning ahead by giving them permission to make derivative works inspired from his design, such as a product line.

CONDITION:

In excellent vintage condition, there are no chips, scratches, or signs of wear on the acrylic sections of this beauty. There is one slight scratch on the nickel connector at the neck, so small as to only be visible on close inspection. It does not show on photos. Overall, my Vintage Modern Stacked Acrylic Lamp looks to have been well cared for in its previous life.

My Vintage Modern Stacked Acrylic Table Lamp is looking for a new home.
Might it be yours..?

As always, thanks for stopping by Lise Vintage Lighting!

CUSTOM RE-WIRE INFORMATION:
-----------------------------------------------

~~If you feel strongly about retaining your "new" lamp's original wiring and electrical components for the sake of authenticity, please send me an email or Etsy convo prior to or as soon as you make your purchase so that I may meet your needs.

~~Unless specifically requested by you NOT to rewire, all other electrical lighting restored in my LVL workshop receives a full customized rewire with the cording and electrical components of your choice. A rewire updates your "new" lamp or fixture to modern safety standards, is considered part of my restoration/customization process, and included in your purchase price. Each rewire includes new vinyl cord and new plug in your choice of color, length, material, new electrical socket components, and (in most cases) refurbished original hardware and/or chain or new standard hardware. Read on for details.

ELECTRICAL SOCKET CHOICES
----------------------------------------------

Your custom rewire always includes a new INTERNAL electrical socket. Depending upon the type of lamp you purchase, your socket choices may also include whether you prefer to retain the original OUTER SOCKET CASING or switch it out for new, your choice of On/Off or 3-Way lamp socket, your choice of switch.

~I only use brand new, high quality electrical components and lamp parts (very often an improvement over the original)—never pre-packaged lamp kits!

~For lamps that benefit from the retention of the OUTER SOCKET CASING, especially if the socket bears the sticker of the original designer or manufacturer, my default option is to salvage the outer socket casing but replace its old electrical components with brand new components. If you prefer brand new socket casings, just say the word!

CORD CHOICES FOR REWIRE:
-------------------------------------------

Standard vinyl cord:
Brown...Black...Old Gold (matte, muted)...Bright Gold (clear coating over yellow-gold)...
Clear//Silver (clear coating over silver)...Ivory (when I can get it!)

CLOTH CORD UPGRADE AVAILABLE:
----------------------------------------------------

Cloth-covered cord made from woven cotton was the standard covering for early electrical cords before plastic and vinyl were utilized or even invented. These days, the luxurious, polished beauty of rayon cloth cording is very "on trend," one of those details that make high-end and custom lighting so special. It is the only choice for most designers, decorators, and buyers who are want that touch of luxury or who desire a "vintage cord look."

* If you think that you may want a cord upgrade, it may be more convenient for you to send a convo in advance so that you can make that decision prior to making a single payment. If you do decide to upgrade your cord choice after payment, I will be happy to simply send an additional PayPal invoice for the additional charge.
