Vintage French Glass and Brass Floor Lamp, France circa 1940

The unusual combination of the pure white pigment used on the interior of this hand blown glass lamp contrasts beautifully with the circular brass base. This vintage French floor lamp from France circa 1940 is a rare survivor of time when exotic combinations of materials were used together in unusual ways. The separate pieces of glass that are supported along the entire vertical height of the shaft are each divided using brass rings for a warm glint between the opaque white inner coating of each shaped glass element. At the base of the lamp the circular brass base is raised on a slope that supports the largest glass element surrounded by a border of large clear glass spheres. The reflective quality of the glass and brass offer a visually powerful counterpoint that gives this lamp its elegant effect. The vintage French lamp has been rewired for American electricity and fitted with a socket for a three way standard base bulb. We have only placed a simple shade upon the lamp and it may easily be changed depending upon where the lamp is placed in an interior. 17"diameter for shade and 12 1/2" diameter at base
