Antique c. 1940s Sight “Flying Saucer” Red Floor Lamp by M.G. Wheeler

 

This piece came from a defunct movie prop house and is in excellent condition.


Melville G. “M.G.” Wheeler, based in Connecticut, initially designed and produced the “Sight Light” table lamp in the 1940s by M.G. Wheeler Co. It is believed these lamps were initially made for submarines. The swivel lamp is made of brass and spun steel. The floor lamps came into production in the same decade.


Based on the original wiring, we recommend rewiring the lamp.
