Playful pair of modernist Art Deco bronze table lamps in the shape of a man walking with his cane in one hand and his hat in the other, as if to greet you “good day!” The light bulb is his head. They are the ultimate idea men! We found this pair on a recent buying trip in Italy. While the maker is unknown, the bases have hallmarks, serial numbers, and are also stamped “New York 1930.” Nice aged patina on the surfaces. Sockets have been fitted with size adapters to fit US candelabra bulbs, and the plugs have been replaced.
