Overview

When science and post-war lighting designers married, the modern housewife of the 1950s suddenly had an incredible array of weird and wild fixtures to choose from. New materials and production techniques developed during World War II, and a new attitude following it, collided to create the lamps we hate to love. Revisit lamp patterns like amoeba, starburst, atomic, and, of course, the indomitable lava lamp. Page through great figural TV lamps and a generous sampling of floor lamps and table lamps of all shapes and sizes in brass, plaster, Lucite, and ceramics. Each lamp is illustrated in full color with newly updated market values to aid collectors.
