Prices for these keep going up an up. So this 1960s Guzzini Grande Bud floor lamp on eBay is well worth talking about.
Actually the design itself is also worth talking about regardless of investment value. This is a gem of the era.
That era is the 1960s into the 1970s, with the lamp produced over both decades. Very much in the Guzzini mould, it has a chromed steel frame and a plastic shade that gives off an orange glow to the side, with the ‘bud’ on the top producing white light.
The original in-line switch is in the cord and the lamp is obviously working as you can see from the photos. What you might not be able to see is a ‘very faint scuff mark’, which is highlighted on one of the images on the listing but in truth, doesn’t look particularly noticeable. Have a look, see what you think. But it wouldn’t bother me personally.
As I said, the value if Guzzini is on the rise and this lamp is up with a price tag of £799. Saying that, you can make a cheaper off if you wish.
