This is a vintage UFO desk lamp made in Germany around the 1950's. It has a funky aluminum shade which has an amazing profile. The shade has a swirling brushed base with a subtle houndstooth pattern. There is even a cool dial switch on the base. It has modern American wiring and is ready to go! The original tag is on the bottom under the felt and reads "PGP Beleuchtungsk Un Ger A Tel Halles" It measures 16 inches tall with a base that is 5x6, and the shade diameter is 14 inches from the widest point. It is in good vintage condition with light wear and a few flea bites to the marble. Takes a standard sized bulb.
