eBay watch: 1970s chrome and black desk lamp


Love this design, although the 1970s chrome and black desk lamp doesn't come with a maker's name sadly.

According to the seller, the lamp was probably made in Italy, that mix of black and chrome, with a modernist feel and directional light for reading or working.

That same seller says the lamp is in 'very, very good above-average condition' with 'only marginal signs of age'. Good price right now too, just £1.

Cheers to Andrew for flagging up an auction that's going to get lovers of space age motors drooling – the RM Auctions motoring sale at Villa d'Este event on the shores of Lake Como in Italy.

The lots range from classic cars to legendary concept cars of the 1960s and 1970s, which are the property of the Bertone museum and the items we are flagging up. Above, you'll find the 1970 Lancia Stratos HF 'Zero' and over the page, you'll find a 1974 Lamborghini Bravo, a 1980s Lamborghini Athon and a 1967 Lamborghini Marzal – the last of those apparently driven by Prince Rainier and Princess Grace at the start of the 1967 Monaco GP.

Want one? Estimates for the concepts range from 60,000 Euros through to 1.5 million Euros for that Marzal. See more images (and more motors) from the auction, which takes place on 21st May. Compared to those prices, the catalogue is fairly cheap at 70 Euros!

eBay watch: Large 1960s marble-based Golamar Italian floor lamp


Ignore the desk and chair, they're only there to show the scale of the headline act – this large Golamar marble-based floor lamp.

Made in Italy in the 1960s, this is a huge thing – 182cm high, which over 6ft tall. All of that is stove on a weighted marble base, finished off with a plastic shade, a long lead and an on/off switched on the cable. if you have space to fill, this will certainly fill it.

According to the seller, condition is 'good', with no cracks or damage. Not a bad price right now, £50, but with some time still to go.
