Lathrop Custom Designs does not have a vast collection of items for sale on Etsy, but those few items on display are exquisite.
Invoking the design ethos of characters like the Rocketeer, this lamp is constructed of metal, glass and plastic. The thrusters are an ingenious part of the design.
Unfortunately, this item doesn’t ship to the United Kingdom, and I suspect it has minimal international options given Lathrop is based in the States, and the item is made from glass.
I’m calling this art nouveau, but is that right? Perhaps more 50s than the turn of the century curves?
