Signed "G.W. Smith 1980", this exceptional stained glass lamp measures 23 ¼" tall, 12 ¼" wide on each side, and is in shades of honey amber yellows, and warm frothy ivory whites. In terms of design and workmanship, this cove lamp is the finest I have ever come across in my years of collecting. The lamp was found in the artist community (some would say, commune) of Mendocino, that California coastal community that was ground zero for the 1960's -70's "back to the land" movement. Besides impeccably crafted stained glass, the lamp also features a wonderfully designed interior brass lamp housing, interior mirror sides and, on the back, secure mounting wires. The cord, on-off switch, and plug, are likewise original and vintage. Ot mounts easily and snugly to the wall and, lighted at night, this lamp subtly commands and animates a room. I think this is just the piece you have been looking for.
