This very well proportioned table lamp is the unique piece by American designer and master woodworker Phillip Powell Lloyd (1919 - 2008) who represents one of the many designers and artists establishing the term "craft design" in the American design of the 20th century.

Powell worked very closely with others, such as Paul Evans and George Nakashima in New Hope, Pennsylvania, where he built his own house, established studio and opened his own showroom during the 1950s.

The lamp shows intimate design attitude by Powell who specialized in design of monumental furniture most. The design from 1951 represents a great connection of the simple brass rod with the linen shade and hand carved wood, which was chose by Powell`s neighbor and friend George Nakashima.
