Mid-Century Brass Mushroom Lamp by Laurel Lamp Mfg. Company


A vintage mushroom floor lamp by the Laurel Lamp Company offered by Snowdrift Antiques.

This very cool floor lamp was produced in the 1970s by the Laurel Lamp Company of Newark, NJ. It features a brass rod body that gracefully flares out to a weighted brass base on the bottom and a flared brass neck on top. It is called a mushroom lamp for obvious reasons. This lamp has an all brass column rod. I have had one with a wood veneer over brass column, and I have had one with all stainless steel hardware. This is my first solid brass one. It has the Underwriter’s Laboratory sticker marked with “Laurel Lamp Mfg. Co.”.

It stands 57 inches tall including the frosted glass globe. The globe is flattened and provides a nice soft glow. The globe measures 12 inches wide. A small brass rotary switch provides 3 way brightness. The base is heavily weighted to prevent an accidental tip over.

This lamp is in excellent vintage condition. It functions perfectly and has all original wiring and a very vintage, yellow translucent plug. There are no cracks or chips to the globe. The brass is in excellent condition with no pitting.

I have chosen not to polish the brass, leaving it in its natural state.

This is a beautiful work of mid-century art that also functions as a floor lamp.
