The ideal gift for anyone with a love of mid-century modern style and a fantastic decorators piece. Ideal for any room and they could be the perfect prop for a 1950s/60s period theatrical production. In VERY GOOD vintage condition with only minor surface imperfections. As you can see they are currently in working order though the wiring is very old and it may be advisable to rewire them. You will need either a professional electrician or a confident DIYer to fix them in your desired location, it will be up to them to get them working there.
If you have any concerns about safety you should get them professionally tested after fitting too. They were designed to be used with a European 220/240 volt domestic power circuit, so if you are from a country with 120 volt mains (like USA for example) it might need them adapting. Please see ALL photos and remember they are over 50 years old and have been pre-owned and pre-loved. Overall height - 32 cm / 12½ in.
