Identifying lamp

khyrenDecember 12, 2010

Hi all!

I purchased a lamp from an estate sale several months ago. For the life of me, I cannot find another like it in order to identify/date it! I saw that people on this forum seem pretty knowledgeable, so was hoping someone could help. At the very least, I was hoping to find out what the name of the style is to help in my search. The lamp is:

Approx 41 inches tall. Table lamp? Too short for floor lamp.

Has three globe lights with a circle of smoked Plexiglas(?) around it.

The switch is a twist and you can turn several times to light up any combination of the three lights.

The bottom is covered in a cardboard type material with no identifying marks.

The only writing on the entire thing is "Triboro" on the rather yellowed electrical plug.

The cord is covered in plastic.

I am attaching a link to my Photobucket pics of the lamp. Any help is appreciated!

Its a 1970s, chrome and smoked acrylic table lamp. The basic style of this lamp seems to be identified a lot with the Italians, like Sciolari. Sonneman (Amer.) and Raaks (?) also made lamps in this general style. I would just search by chrome and smoked acrylic--its mid-century, sometimes called disco-deco. Could be made by anybody.
