RAAK HOLLAND 'GLOBE 1960' FLOOR LAMP MID-CENTURY MODERN
VINTAGE EAMES ERA EXAMPLE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION RAAK GLOBE 1960 FLOOR LAMP DESIGNED IN HOLLAND BY FRANK LIGTELIJN 1960'S. ALSO KNOWN AS RAAK UNIK LAMP. CHROME AND SMOKED GLASS WITH HEAVY STEEL BASE.
GLOBE ROTATES SO IT CAN BE USED AS AN UPLIGHT/ACCENT LIGHT OR READING LIGHT. IN-LINE ON/OFF SWITCH.
HEIGHT ADJUSTABLE FROM ABOUT 44" TO 68". GLOBE DIAMETER IS 9" AND FEET DIAMETER IS 10"
THIS EXAMPLE IS IN EXCELLENT, LIKE NEW CONDITION. THE GLASS IS 100 AND I'D GIVE THE CHROME A 98.
THE BASE MAY HAVE COME PAINTED BLACK AND COULD BE SPRAYED OR LEFT RAW AS IT IS. THE ONLY OTHER THING IS THE RUBBER GROMMETS THAT PROTECT THE GLASS FROM THE CHROME FRAME HAVE HARDENED WITH AGE, WHICH IS TO BE EXPECTED IN A LAMP OF THIS VINTAGE.
120 VOLTS WITH SCREW BASE SOCKET. ORIGINAL TWO PRONG PLUG. DOES NOT SAY WHAT THE MAXIMUM WATTAGE BULB THAT CAN BE USED, BUT I AM INCLUDING A SYLVANIA NARROW SPOT DESIGNER 16 BULB, WHICH GIVES A WHITE LIGHT. HOWEVER, THE LAMP MOST LIKELY WAS ORIGINALLY EQUIPPED WITH A LARGE BULB THAT FILLED UP THE REFLECTOR, WHICH WILL MAKE IT AUTHENTIC TO THE TIME.
SHIPPING TO THE US IS $125, AS THE LAMP NEEDS TO BE WELL PROTECTED AND WILL BE SENT FEDEX GROUND SERVICE.
