Extraordinary Chrome Plated Airplane Lamp, Circa 1930
I was away for about 2 weeks now.
I am posting this as the last post of it got lost. I really know nothing about this lamp and apart from the one that I have, I have only seen one, a man in England sent me details of his. The chrome is in excellent shape and the only place I have seen to get one was in England where I got mine over 10 years ago.. The other person who had one seems to have passed on.
The Airplane is done in a plated Chrome finish in excellent shape, which I lightened for the photo, to show detail !~
It must have been pricey and rare in its day. At one time I had a posting of some company that sold like light bulbs. I should have kept that. The piece is large and needs approx a 30 inch table to show properly. It is a lot bigger than models used for the airplane ashtrays and is about 4 times the size of that plane. It must have been a great showpiece in its day !~
