This is a modernist chrome floor lamps from the Eames era.

A very VERY heavy cast iron base provides the weight for this vintage chrome lamp, as well as the anchor for the tilting chrome pole that holds the eyeball shade.

The pole can be vertical, or friction positioned at a slant, serving the same function as an arc lamp, being able to position it over a chair or table.

On a dark floor, this lamp will almost seem to float in the air. The modernist design of the tilting mechanism on the base is exquisite.

The small screw cap that keeps the socket assembly attached to the shade is missing, the socket is loose, so the lamp is not working. Probably should re-wire anyway, as I recommend that for all vintage lamps.

No dings, no dents, some minor scratches. The 8" x 11" textured base has good enamel. Straight up and down, the lamp is about 58" high. The eyeball shade is about 7" across.

This superb minimalist design has a very tiny footprint on your floor and is capable of delivering precision lighting to specific areas. Highly desirable design.
