ARTELUCE Sarfatti Double Mid Century Modern
Floor Lamp Lightolier Style! This is a very
unusual vintage mid-century combination
floor and reading lamp. It features a larger
pierced cone torchiere shade lamp for room
lighting and the weighted swing arm lamp for
personal task lighting. Impressed mark in
the iron weigh in the base along with C5220.
(see picture below), Gino Sarfatti for
Arteluce or Lightolier? It is 61" from the
floor to the top of the stationary large
cone top. 35" overall length on the arm.
Nice long, 114" good original cord and plug.
On/Off switch on each cone. Brown metal
base, center pole and arm weight. Brass
finish on the exterior of the cones and on
the swing arm. Interior of shades is white.
Stationary center lamp is set up for 3-way.
Smaller cone is articulated and moves in and
out and from side to side. The lamp is in
good working condition. It displays fine for
use but does need some restoration to be a
real eye catcher again. There is some toning
to the brass finish, some rubs and wear, a
dent on the edge (switch end) of the smaller
shade. Some rubs, scuffs and scratches to
the sides of the shades. The finish on the
base has rough spots and wear. Its a good
quality made lamp in a hard to find design
that would be a prime candidate for
personalized restoration to fit into your
mid-century modern decor.

This stunning vintage bronze table lamp was
produced by the talented artists and craftsmen
from the Marbro Co. back in the late 1940's.
To understand and appreciate its unique and
distinctive style, one has to look to it
origins. Lamps produced by Marbro were not
just run of the mill lamps that you could find
in chain run furniture, or discount stores.
Almost all of their lamps were built to order
for renown designers, high end retailers,
movie stars and other rich and famous
celebrities. Even presidents were customers of
Marbro! Lamps would began with a piece of art
from world wide artisans. Some pieces
were antique others were more period. In
the case of this lamp, it began with a finely
detailed bronze vase form from Europe. In the
hands of the Marbro craftsmen it took on its
distinctive style, with the finished arched
base and brass post, top cap, double light
socket. Yes it is one of a kind and the fact
that original bronze vase was hand made,
ensures that no two vases were identical. This
lamp is complete, and all original and in
excellent vintage condition.. It retains its
"Old World Craftsmanship, New World Style
Marbro, foil label, although the label is
faded and tattered on the edges. It also has
the Marbro embossed mark on the bottom of the
base. It is majestic with its 41" overall
height. 23" tall from the base to the top of
the bronze body. Quite substantial weighing in
at 16 lbs. It is in good working condition and
looks fabulous. No breaks or cracks or
repairs. Original pattina. Shade shown is not
included and was only shown to give an idea of
the overall display beauty of the lamp.
A beautiful unique and high quality lamp to
add to your decor. Bronze lamps by Marbro are
a very illusive, and finding this one has been
a real treasure for me. Today their lamps are
highly collectible and sought after by anyone
who are familiar with the company's history.
Another interesting note, bronze and crystal
lamps were the top of the line for Marbro, and
sold for $2000. to $4000.00 originally!
