This lamp is a design icon that integrates the stand and shade in a single piece of glass. Massimo Vignelli has a stellar reputation as a world leading designer and his Fungo (mushroom - but officially the lamp was named 4040 Zaffiro) lamp came in a range of colours. This one is soft pink with gold foil throughout (many do not have gold foil). This lamp was very popular and Venini had it in production for a long stretch. This particular one is an early production piece (that can make it more desirable for collectors) with the original electrics in working order (although getting the electrics checked out for a possible update is always recommended). It is in excellent condition with no chips or scratches. It does have an old (maybe when made) stable crack on the bottom that cannot be seen without picking up the lamp (pictured).
