Incredibly RARE - 35 inch MAJESTIC atomic space lamp. What more can you say about New York's Majestic Lamp and Clock Company? In the rarefied niche of rather surreal Mid Century American lamp companies, Majestic produced some of the most provocative and memorable lamps ever seen. Not to mention highly coveted.Lamps with'big personalities' and other-worldly spacey and sculptural designs. More timeless than some of the awkward lamps.
By Moss or Reglor, which often are relegated to the'kitsch' category. It seems as if Majestic clearly scoffed at the Miesian notion of'Less Is More'. I think it's fairly safe to say; more people can identify the iconic Majestic. Z Lamp' over George Nelson's minimalist'1/2 Nelson' lamp. Some of Majestic's lamps fall into the category of functional art.
This rarity fits that bill. At roughly 35 inches tall, this lamp could double as a table lamp as well as a floor accent lamp. The EIGHT whip-stiched fiberglass'leaves' have no rips or tears. Off-white with an exquisite black and gold abstract pattern. Some minor paint loss near the top of the black metal orb.
This lamp is probably 60 years old. The brass pods hold 4 starburst bulbs (new Westinghouse starburst bulbs will be included). Lower socket takes normal sized bulb. The switch on the black orb, turns on the uppers, the lower, or both.
Will never be produced again and I appreciate their rarity. I never sell "Frankenstein" lamps odd pieces slapped together, slathered in new paint (oddly enough usually fire engine red) and passed off as having an exotic (usually Italian, or Gino Sarfatti) origin.The item "SUPER RARE large MAJESTIC Mid Century Atomic space age 50s VTG sputnik lamp" is in sale since Saturday, September 15, 2018.
