Pair Of Large Lava Glaze Lamps With Original Shades

lgl

As you may already know, Mel and I are lamp junkies. So, it should be no surprise that we would decorate with numerous lamps. I have always loved this kind of finish on lamps. Some folks call this type of finish volcano, lava or drip glaze. Whatever they call it, I love it.

As usual, I was cruising Craigslist and saw that these were being sold at a shop in Paradise, California. The ad only showed one of these lamps, so I was pleasantly surprised to see two of them!

These lamps are breathtaking in person. I love the shots of cobalt and chartreuse.

I am especially fond of these style lamps because of the secondary lighting behind the cutouts. As with most lamps of this period with this sort of finish, there is crazing.

This set came with the original lampshades that are in fantastic condition. The fabric ring they placed around the shades matches the fabric shade inside the body of the lamp.

These will definitely be conversation pieces.

Here is another set we picked up in Chico last weekend. These are made of heavy plaster unlike the ones above that are made of ceramic.

This set also has secondary lighting inside the main body of the lamps. I need to replace the bulbs inside and it appears it isn’t as easy as just replacing a bulb.

These lamps have the same finishing process as the ones above.

These also have the original shades with them. Both sets have a funkiness to them that I think will give our place a cool vide.

Designer Flemming Brylle and Preben Jacobsen Acrylic Desk Lamp

IMG_7133

 A large part of lighting from the Space Age/Mod era was acrylic lighting. This cool lamp was picked up last weekend while Mel and I were traveling around. There are some pieces that you know are designer without even knowing who designed it, and this was one of them.

 This lamp is constructed of five (5) hard smokey grey acrylic support arches / legs that mushroom up from the bottom to the top. They form the basic skeleton of the lamp. They are connected to each other by varying sized pliable white plastic strips which together form the shade of the lamp.

They mask the light bulb which is housed inside.

Flemming Brylle & Preben Jacobsen

In 1965 the artist Flemming Brylle and industrial designer Preben Jacobsen invented the self assembly/ knock down system in modern lighting. They designed and produced a wide range of designs and spread them all over the world, millions per year. The last years Brylle/Jacobsen designs have been more popular than ever. The simple Scandinavian design make their designs a safe choice within contemporary lighting.

Mel and I came across another cool lamp but we have not been able to substantiate who is the designer. There are no makers marks or any identifying info on this lamp.

This is a cool table lamp and has styling similar to Canadian designer Douglas Ball.

We picked this lamp up the same time we picked up the Flemming Brylle and Preben Jacobsen Acrylic Desk Lamp.

If any of you readers out there know who this was designed by let me know, hopefully I don’t hear IKEA!
