An Ikora Glass Table Lamp, Mottled blue, green and red in colour, the metal mount is not marked, approx height 37cm, plus shade.

RARE and desirable - GREAT big and beautiful vintage art glass lamp made in Germany by WMF Ikora.
The globe is of bright and rich coloured glass with varying shades and bubbly glass veins running throughout. It has a light bulb socket mounted on top and one on the bottom, so that the globe is lit from the inside when the light is on for a fantastic effect.
Germany circa 1930's.
WMF (Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik) started making their own glass inserts for their metal-ware in 1883. This type of glass was launched in 1926 along with IKORA-Kristall, with its coloured inlays and patterns of bubbles. Both types of glass were very successful and continued in production for about ten years, until production of art glass virtually ceased in Germany prior to the WWII.
