FS George Nelson Bubble Lamp Saucer shape|Large Size $300obo

Came across 12 of these gorgeous lamps and came home with 3 because they're so large. They are way too large for my condo. I can pick up more if I find more interest for them. They were used for lighting at a church and have been replaced with recessed lighting. They are the newer reproduction from modernica.

CONDITION:
Excellent condition, no visible dust. No tears, holes, warping or discoloration.

HISTORY:
If you're unfamiliar with this iconic piece, check it out here: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/quick-h ... s-b-139980

COMPARE:
You can compare it with retail here: http://modernica.net/saucer-lamp.html The large size retails for $435 without tax/shipping. I'd like to sell it for $300 or best offer/trade.

Looking forward to being a regular on this forum!

thanks,
-j

Out of curiosity, what does the church itself look like? I love churches that have MidCentury architecture/decor.

I was recently in one designed by Saarinen, and was pleasantly surprised to see original Eames shell chairs in the lobby. *drool*

church design

hi csey,
the church itself didn't have much MCM elements. I didn't see anything else in the facility that had a modern look to it. There was a lot of wood paneling but that's about it. Next time I'm there, I'll take photos.

Late last year, I was doing network setup for a facility my church had purchased out in the bay area, burlingame. That place had a definitive MCM feel with a small atrium with ceiling to floor glass. There were hints of MCM everywhere.

I will try to find photos when I get a chance.
thx

Is the money on the sale of these going to the church?

Unfortunately no,
Proceeds won't be going to the church.
They will be going to the sub7-needs-to-pay-his-bills fund.
:wink:
