Art deco lamp, c.1938

I love this American “machine age” metal lamp, found at a newly opened antiques shop in upstate NY. It sits on a side table in my bedroom and is one of the few pieces from my collection that I use often. The lamp dates from the late 1920’s and measures 18″ tall. The coffee tin with key wind lid is dated 1938.

A truly inventive solution to recycling a discarded coffee can and replacing a damaged lampshade all at once.

The pierced top of the “shade” allows the heat from the bulb to escape, as well as cast a lovely pattern on the ceiling.
