eBay watch: 1970s yellow space age table lamp

We like the design, but it's the current price of this 1970s space age table lamp that has turned our heads.

We don't think it's a designer piece, but it definitely has a 'look'. Indeed, if you are furnishing a room with a late '60s or 1970s space age feel, this would fit in perfectly.

As for the design, the shade is an opaque white plastic with circular opening at the top and a yellow trim. That's on top of a metallic, tulip-like structure that is lacquered canary yellow. The original switch is also on this stem.

The lamp is said to be in 'very good /good condition' and in 'full working order' with a few age related marks and scratches  on the yellow lacquer work (see pictures on listing).

Right now it's at just £5.09, so a potential bargain. Actually, that should be two bargains, as the seller has another one for sale too.
