John Saladino Lamps
John Saladino Lamps
“Classical principles and Vitruvian proportions underlie the organization of each work whether modern or traditional. Originally designed in 1971, the Saladino Lamp is still an essential piece in contemporary design for its elegance and simplicity.” states the John Saladino group.
The pair of lamps offered for sale are original vintage John Saladino lamps, the lamps were made from Pyrex laboratory wear with custom light trees and baffle. The PYREX insignia is on both lamps. The pair is probably from the 1970’s - 1980’s and are from the estate of a well know Atlanta business owner and philanthropist. The lamps have been authenticated by the John Saladino Group, however, I was told the lampshades are not original. The lampshades appear to be very close to the size of the originals, so they may be good for reshading. The shades are not included in the sale, put if the buyer wants them, they are free of charge.
Materials: Clear glass cylinder with polished chrome/nickel plated metal parts, white plexiglass baffle and a cream-colored dimmer switch on clear cord.
Height: 28 inches (has adjustable bulb tree for varying height)
Diameter: 24 inches (shade width)
The lamps are in very good vintage condition and both are all original except for the shades, but the shades are vintage as well and are discolored on the white inside interior and there is some creasing on the shade. The only issues I have noted is the plexiglass white baffle has become a little warped, probably due to the heat of the light bulbs. Both lamps have small chip marks on the bottom edge of the glass, but they really aren’t noticeable.
The lamps will be carefully packed using bubble wrap, styrofoam peanuts and rigid cardboard boxes. Because of the size and fragility, each lamp will be shipped in its own box. If wanted, the two lampshades would have to be shipped in another box. The carrier will be Federal Express Ground for businesses or Federal Express Home Delivery, the pieces will be insured for the sales price, a Federal Express tracking number will be emailed to the buyer on the day of shipment, which is usually within two business days after purchase, and the package will have to be signed for upon arrival.
