World Fair Brussels 1958 "label"
« on: September 22, 2008, 07:32:13 PM »
hi,

I bought this lamp base, I loved the affect in the twisted stem.

The label is the same as the one Pip supplied to the labels gallery.

Does anyone know any information about this label?
Did just 1 factory use it, were only the pieces made that year given it?

thats its,, loads of thanks as usual everyone.   :hiclp:

The design would have been launched at Brussels. It should be fully documented in the Brussels literature. Marcus has some of that but is not around at the moment.

Nothing on line that I know of. Catalogues will be quite scarce. Try Rakow.
