I think that this vintage gooseneck lamp is a fair bit older than most of the desk lamps you see on Mint. The base is quite solid, and the gooseneck looks to be brass, as opposed to the usual chrome. I think over the years someone’s interfered a bit with the lamp – the base looks like someone’s had a go with a can of spray paint, and I’m pretty sure that the plastic switch isn’t original. But despite all of this it’s still a very handsome lamp and not in too bad a nick for its age!

Dimensions: 37cm tall (when fully extended) x 11.5cm in diameter (shade); Base measures 16cm long x 9.5cm wide

Price: R200
