Manufactured by National Products of Louisville, the Gruvwood line of lamps was selected for the 1964 Worlds Fair to be featured in the House of Good Taste. The line was subsequently used by leading mid century American and European designers of the day in their decor. The name "Gruvwood" came from the use of strips or squares of walnut hardwood that were separated by 45 degree angled gaps. The lamps show light evidence of use, a few minor rubs to the black metal trim on top and bottom, an easy fix with a dab of marker or paint. The walnut is in great shape as shown in photos.
2 different switch mechanisms, not sure which came first but one was obviously changed at some point. The protective felt bases are no longer there but you can see remnants around the edges of the bases. Please see our other mid century Gruvwood lamp listings.
