Original Mid-Century Arc Lamp

R2,200.00 R1,320.00

Based on the wear to the base of this lamp, as well as the quality of the chrome arm, I was fairly certain that this was an original arc lamp when I first saw it, not a cheap, contemporary knock off. Still, I was delighted to have the reassurance of the OMI makers stamp just below that beautifully engineered ball mechanism (which allows the shade to move in different directions)!

OMI were an American lighting company that were bought by another respected American firm, Koch and Lowy, in the 1960s, so presumably our light was made before that date. Unfortunately the shade isn’t original, but it is retro, and is a perfect fit for the lamp. We’ve also replaced the globe holder, so the electrics are in good working order.

A very stylish (and very impressive!) floor lamp, whose battle scars are proof of its authenticity.

Dimensions: 196.5cm tall; Shade measures approx. 32cm in diameter
