1970s Vintage Cactus Skeleton Lamp With Pierced Copper Shade: $325

Description: Add some organic flair to your household with this gorgeous cactus skeleton lamp! The rough, matted texture of the cactus skeleton provides a pleasant contrast to the smooth, hand-worked and polished copper elements.

The top of this lamp’s body is capped with a beautiful custom-formed copper molding. The copper shows its age with slight oxidation and patina, most prominently near the thread. This lamp has an older two-prong style plug, and is in good working order. As with all vintage lighting, we nonetheless recommend that the buyer gets this lamp professionally rewired.

The original, pierced copper shade is signed and backed with a white plastic liner. The shade is imprinted “JF”, though further research did not bring forth any definitive artisans or craftsmen to attribute to. A closer picture of this imprint is present in the photo gallery. The shade is about 9″ inches tall and 22″ inches in diameter.
