This American art deco table lamp is from the 1930’s. It was designed by Edward Kent for the Railley Company, Cleveland Ohio. Constructed of black enameled and highly polished aluminum, the lamp is a testimony to the machine age. The downward slope of the three graduated shades is repeated in reverse with the finial. The black enameled shaft is split by three polished aluminum rings. The interior of the bottom shade is painted white to reflect light for reading or work. The diffused light from the next two shades is colored by red and green painted interiors. The lamp is 18” High, has been rewired and is in excellent condition.
