During the 1960s and 1970s, from Laurel Canyon to Topanga, Big Sur to Malibu and down to Encinitas lamps such as this one signaled the laid back sophistication that has come to be known as California Style. Natural beauty, that to the masses of the time would have looked like nothing more then a hunk of wood with a pipe through it - was appreciated by a small slice of design aficionados who embraced every opportunity to make a statement as they turned from gold and silver jewelry to brass, and formal design fixtures of the past to one as radical as this. Prized for its beautiful grain patterns and rarity, Burl wood is highly sought after for various elements of design. This exemplary piece is fascinating in its natural form, and a great way to incorporate and celebrate the outdoors within. This lamp is a functional piece of art and a definite conversation piece. Majestic, solid wood base is in very good original vintage condition. Metal fittings show light tarnishing as demonstrated in photos. New custom lamp shade is in excellent condition.
