Lamp with the original two prong plug so I would suggest using an AC converter or plug if you are looking to use with UK mains. Please note light build not included but replacement E12 bulbs are easily sourced. The Selene eclipse table lamp was made in several colours over the years.
This lamp was in production for several years, also after 1969 when the company became Bilumen. The pressed ABM on the plastic bottom never changed on these lamps. This I believe to be an early version due to the original sticker and the switch. Company was founded in 1904 by Bernhard Blitzer under the name of New York Gas and Appliance Company.Later the name changed into Lightolier Inc. When electric light became more widely accepted. The name Lightolier is a contraction of the words light and chandelier. In the 1960s Lightolier introduced the first track lighting system, designed by Anthony Donato. Lightolier also produced a huge amount of lamps designed by Gaetano Sciolari in the sixties and seventies. His Cubic chandelier was a big success in the States thanks to its presence in the Dallas TV series and in the James Bond film Live and Let Die (1973). The Lytegem series was designed by Michael Lax.
The most well known designer of the firm was Gerald Thurston. More information about the designer over here on Vintageinfo. Lightolier was the first lighting company to introduce digital lighting systems in the early nineties. In 2007, Koninklijke Philips N.
From the Netherlands (Philips Royal Electronics) announced that it would acquire the Genlyte Group which would make Lightolier a part of Philips.
