Fratelli Rumi Tripod Table Lamp

Materials: 3 black painted brass rods ending on a ball on both sides. Adjustable ornamental brass screws. Brass parts. Iron spring clamp. Frosted opal onion or tulip bulb shaped glass lampshade. Brass E27 socket with a porcelain ring.

Height: 47 cm / 18.50”

Width: ∅ 12,5 cm / 4.92”

Electricity: 1 bulb E27, 1 x 60 watt maximum, 110/220 volt.
Any type of light bulb can be used, not a specific one preferred.

Period: 1950s, 1960s – Mid-Century Modern.

Designer: To be appraised, probably the Rumi Brothers themselves.

Manufacturer: Fratelli Rumi Lampadari, Milano, Italy. (Rumi Brothers Lighting, Milan).

Other versions: For the moment it is unknown if this Fratelli Rumi tripod table lamp was made in several versions.

This lamp was bought from an old lighting shop in Milan, Italy in the 1990s. It was never sold and it is in perfect state. It is NOS as they say, from a New Old Stock. The labels are still attached to the lamp.

First label: F.lli RUMI Lampadari – Milano and written on it 565 nero. 565 is probably the model and nero is Italian for black.

Second label: the price in Italian lira: ₤ 9600. +- 5 dollar/euro now.

There is nothing to be found about this company; a firm that is probably long gone and forgotten. At that time every quarter in Milan had a factory, often several in the same street.

A firm with the name Rumi Illumazione in Milan has existed. It was owned by Angelo Rumi, but it was active from 1987 until 2007 and got nothing to do with it, except from the fact that it could be family.
