Interesting modernist cubist floor lamp , aluminium with bakelite stratfied top , it was the first atempt to use bakeliye to built furniture in the 1930's  .One use of  Bakelite resin was the creation of phenolic sheet materials. Phenolic sheet is a hard, dense material made by applying heat and pressure to layers of paper or glass cloth impregnated with synthetic resin .It was abandoned to be replaced by Formica in the 1950's .

This is a very unique piece , apparently rare since I  have never see  another one .

H 60 in ( to the bulb )  mid top 14 x 14 in . rewired with a US socket.
