Collector's item. Made in the USA by Dazor Manufacturing Corp. This authentic industrial floor lamp is the ultimate mid-century ''task'' lighting. It is in good condition considering it's age! Shows some dings here and there, but minor and consistent with it's vintage condition. Overall the lamp presents well and is in it's original paint color. Working order with a fluorescent bulb.
''Dazor was the first fluorescent lamp manufacturer to combine the technology of the portable task light with fluorescent light bulbs. The technology was highlighted in a display by General Electric at the 1938 World's Fair. The lamp became popular quickly, especially among draftsman and architects of the time who found that the lights offered better visibility than traditional incandescent lights''.
On May 14, 1940 patent (No. 2200,518) was granted on what is described as an adjustable bracket structure ("adjustable bracket"), a device which permitted movability of an arm used on desk lamps and other items.
