This lamp is unmarked but we believe it has all the design elements of Gerald Thurston for Lightolier. From the wonderful arched arm with the adjustable semimatte black shade to the white plastic diffuser to soften the light it seems to have all his hallmarks. A nice way to add a modernist touch to your desk.

It is in fine vintage condition with minor scratches on the black shade and base with some of them touched up and the brass colored metal is tarnished. There is one small dent in the shade (see pics), the underside has scratches and yellowing of the white paint (see pics). The plastic diffuser is great condition with no melting or burning, there is a tiny crack where it attaches to the shade. The lamps works but is sold "as is". As with all vintage lighting and electrical items we always suggest that you have them checked by a professional before using.

Dimensions - 18" tall, 12" diam. shade, 8" diam. at the base.
