We are offering a lucite Astrolite centerpiece in much better that average condition. The piece is very substantial in size with the lucite base measuring 15.75 inches long by about 8.5 inches wide. The base is made from a piece of lucite that is a very hefty 1.375 inches thick. The lucite base holds an assortment of 8 hollow decorative aluminum tubes. Most of the tubes can be removed and placed in a variety of configurations within the holes in the lucite. Two of the end tubes cannot be removed for reasons that are not clear to us. The tubes are in a variety of lengths ranging from 10 inches long down to 6 inches long. This would be a wonderful item for your mid-century modern table decor or to be used in an eclectic mix of decors. The tubes could be used to hold candles or possibly hold dried flowers. Because the tubes are open at the bottoms, they would not be good for holding water for keeping fresh cut flowers alive. The piece also makes a tremendous decorative statement if simply left empty. There are the usual scratches located on the underside of the lucite base that would be the result of being slid across a surface such as a tabletop. The bulk of the lucite on the top and sides is in above average condition with a limited number of minor scratches. The aluminum tubes are also in excellent condition. They retain a fine shiny surface that is hard to find in vintage aluminum. This is a very good piece of decorative Astrolite configured in a form that is hard to obtain. You will love having this item to show off at your next dinner party.
