Pair of brass ‘bridge’ reading lamps, Italian

c. 1940,

157 x 56 cm

All of these "switchback" lamps can swing out to a longer reach and are height adjustable, with a satisfyingly simple and instant vertical holding system. They are very smart and pleasing. These were originally fitted with much wider shades, like the red one shown, and other shapes also work.
