One thing about mid-century manufacturing...they completely overbuilt, because they could. They hadn't realized yet, because external pressures had not yet demanded it, that they could make everything more cheaply by thinning out the materials and even the craftsmanship.
Behold this amazing (circa) 1950's Dazor task lamp, built with the kind of steal you might need for a space ship, yet ready to show up to work everyday on your desk (for the next 100 years is needed). Need to get a closer look at your work, because it's tiny or just because your eyes are no longer 25? You will LOVE the magnifying glass built into to this lamp, it's completely ingenious.
Very good condition, both functionally and aesthetically.
