Fantastic Table Lamp by Takashimaya of Japan
Very unusual and extremely attractive, Japanese designs rarely lend themseleves to western modernist ideals. This lamp easily transcends origin with its naturalistic yet futuristic stylings. The central acrylic shade is surrounded by a pair of bentwood rings, each supported by numerous delicate wood reeds with a slight arc creating a dual trumpet form. Includes the original pull chain, on a three way switch, with off, main light on, and a thrid position lighting a smaller bulb for nightlight usage (red bulb in photo).
