Floor light, model n. 1049N

designed circa 1950-1952  


lacquered aluminum, lacquered steel, brass and marble

Arteluce edition, Milan, Italy


212 x 25 cm; 83 7/16 x 9 13/16 in.

Very good overall condition.

Traces of rust on the shorter stem particularly closer to the base and to the lower part of the balancing weight. Light paint lacks around the top rims of the shades , light oxidation marks inside the shades and to the brass, with the top joint slightly loose. Probably missing a closing bolt on one side near the stem's junction and the lampshades probably repainted at a later stage.


Sotheby's does not guarantee electrical components and suggests having all wiring inspected by a licensed electrician.
