'Z' table lamp, ca. 1955
Enameled steel, brass. Manufactured by Philips, Belgium / Netherlands.
Brass plate on top impressed with maker's mark. 

17.25" H x 12.75" W x 12.75" D


Very good vintage condition. Moderate patina throughout the brass, heaviest near the base. The shade appears to retain its original finish and has no dents or dings. Occasional minor scratches or scuffing, mainly around edges. Weighted base element with speckled areas of finish loss, as well as minor loss around the edges. The lamp has been tested and is in working condition. The cord's plastic coating is pulling away slightly where it enters the lamp. EU plug.
