Superb Mid Century Atomic Flying Saucer Light - Vtg 50s Hanging Retractable Lamp For Sale
Up for offer is a fantastic, vintage saucer lamp. It is a great looking, mid-century pull down light, similar to those of "Mad Men", Moe Lights,and Lightolier. We can vouch for its authenticity because we removed it from a home we purchased that was built in 1950.The lightlooked as though it had hung in the same spot in that house for over 60 years, and itwas in working order when we removed it. The lampis about 18" across and isa gold-colored metal which we believe is lacquered brass.The conditionof the lamp isexcellent and incredible for its age. Please note the cool pull down wood handle at the bottom of the lamp in the main photo. The retractable cord pulley works. It has the original wiring and mounting bracket.
