Greta Grossman Cobra Table Lamp for Ralph O. Smith
An award-winning 1948 design by Swedish-American Greta Grossman for Ralph O. Smith, a California-based lighting company. The lamp, colloquially known as the “Cobra” for its uniquely shaped shade that resembles a cobra’s hood, is counterweighted with a segmented arm curving upward from a round base. The oblong shade slants gently from the arm to its outer edge. Light is controlled by a push button on/off switch on base. Retains the original Good Design label inside the shade.
Condition: Vintage condition; professionally cleaned. Some scratches, appropriate to the age and use of the piece, can be observed on the enamel. While we do not guarantee vintage electrical components, the wiring has been tested and is in working order.
Dimensions: The lamp is 14.5” deep x 11.5” wide x 15” tall, but the versatile adjustable arm extends up to 22.5” tall.
