Glass floor lamp model OS - S 02/001 designed in the 1960s for the company Osvětlovací Sklo in Valašské Meziříčí. The glassworks there was founded in 1854 and was among the largest manufacturers of lighting glass in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, primarily producing layered glass. The glassworks closed in 2003.
It’s not clear who designed this lamp, but it is reminiscent of lamps designed by Karel Volf. It is made from Triplex opal milk glass and consists of two parts – the base and the top shade – which are separated by metal rings. The on/off switch is located on the cable, which extends from the base of the lamp. When lit, the lamp emits a very soft, pleasant light. The lamp is functional and in perfect condition.
