A fantastic floor lamp, manufactured by Rausch in Germany around 1960.
The eye-catching feature of this piece is the shade, made of “Mother of Pearl” (Capiz Shell): an organic composite material made of the same material that composes pearls. It gives the hood a unique, glass like appearance that beautifuly difusses the light when lit and adds a fantastic warm atmosphere to the interior!
The chrome plated metal arm holds the base and shade. The Capiz shells are also used to cover the base, creating a beautiful harmony to the design and making this piece excel in luxury!
It remains in very good, vintage condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.
