Airplane Over the Earth DC-3 large art deco aluminum lamp


  • $ 325.00

This is a superb quality Art Deco aluminium casting of the legendary Douglas DC3 aircraft produced from 1936 to 1942. Over 16,000 DC3s were produced and many remain in service around the world today!

This model is cast in aluminium (not cheap plated material!), polished to a beautiful lustre and treated to prevent tarnishing. The light bulb is in the body of the plane, and the light shines out the windows. The lamp is for atmosphere, not reading. There are two screws under the wing that remove the body so the lightbulb can be  changed.

The center rod bends so the plane can be aimed up or down, left or right. The propellers are a pewter metal. The bottom of the base is covered with felt.

The lamp provides a beautiful warm light for a den, study or TV room, a truly iconic piece! 

This is a 1970s re-issue of the original 1930s lamp.
