Very nice and unusual table lamp made by unknown designed or manufacturer for Metz & Co, Holland ca. 1960. This is a very nice shaped big mushroom table lamp made of very old and thin polyester and has a white lacquer finish. This lamp was purchased at Metz & Co so we don’t know whether this is Italian, Danish or Dutch. Surely this has Italian influences but I think this could be a Dutch design and maybe it could be even older than 1960. Nicely made in a mold, original old brass and porcelain socket and original wiring. Very nice and simple typical sober Dutch piece or lighting. The lamp is in original condition and shows cracks all over the white lacquer finish. But I have always liked that part about this lamp so you can see its old and visibly old, it’s the patina to this lamp that makes the beauty. If anted of course we can have it professionally painted in perfect white but we always prefer to preserve the authenticity on pieces like this as much as possible. The lamp exists in 2 loose polyester parts and a metal cross with socket attached in the middle.
