1950s Art Speciality Co Flying Saucer Desk Lamp

1950s mid century flying saucer double-shade desk lamp manufactured by Art Speciality Co, Chicago. This wonderful Art Deco style desk lamp features a heavy enamelled supporting brown base with a matching upper canopy shade and conical shaped bulb holder.  A contrasting white lower shade helps to reflect the light beautifully.  A supporting swivel brass arm supports the two shades and a single matching brass feature screw sits in the centre of the shades holding them in place.  This also allows easy access to the single E27 screw in bulb below when it needs replacing.  A small swivel on/off switch sits at the bottom of the brown metal bulb holder.  

In relatively good vintage condition with some slight scratches and rust patches to the shades and base.  The brass shows some age-related wear which is to be expected and in keeping with its age. Please refer to the images for some more detail. The supporting brass arm could be tightened to help straighten the lamp but this would mean penetrating the original protective cloth underneath to access the screw.  I will therefore leave this decision to whomever purchases the light.  It's your choice whether you can live with this or not.

A perfect desk light which will help to illuminate anything you're reading below.

The lights has been rewired with a brown silk flex.
