Metal, glass, wood
The Modern decor was not complete without a "space-age" lamp. Pole lamps with three separately adjustable lights were very popular in the 1960s. Some pole lamps were free-standing; others reached from floor to ceiling with a spring inside to keep them tight against the ceiling. This lamp was used by the Irwin family in Quincy, Illinois.
Gift of George M. Irwin, Quincy, IL (1990.31)
