Vintage 1958 Motion Lamp

Waterski Vacation

#771

by: ECONOLITE, USA

This lamp is Really Fun!!

In Mint Condition this lamp has sold recently for over $3500 on eBay!

Now, this lamp of mine is not mint, but many of my favorites in my collection aren't. I simply turn the damaged side to the back and the main side faces forward! It looks great to me, and works fabulously!

So if you don't mind that it isn't perfect...you don't have to spend $3550 to have one of the rarest and highest valued motion lamps available.. I am selling mine at No Reserve!

I Love the style of the Bathing Suits!

When in motion, the lamp really comes to life, the lake glistens, the water flows under the skiers and jets spray out from the skis and the boats! In the background we see palm trees and the coast line passing by..

This Econolite Lamp is Featured on the Cover (and on page 57) of the Collectors Guide to Motion Lamps By: Sam and Anna Samuelian, W they describe it as, "Very desireable and rather scarce"

No motion lamp model by Econolite or L.A. Goodman's has sold for a higher price that I know of !!

The outer shade views well from front on as in first picture, though it has several cracks going sround to other side, Largest is on back side with red and white boat, and t are two smaller ones near the top. I have pictured them with lamp turned on to show how they affect it. Inner spinner has some slight age wear, but is working very well and spins great! This lamp is from my own collection, Suitable for any display, or would look perfect in your excecutive office, or any display of antique motion lamps. because of imperfect condition t is no return of this lamp. please view pictures carefully and ask questions before you bid reguarding any aspect that may affect your desire to own this lamp.
