Rougier tube lamp | Unknown Designer | Rougier, Canada | ca. 1970 | UPDATE

An update to my post of February 4, 2009, the Rougier tube lamp by Rougier, Canada. I’ve posted numerous times before about lamps by Rougier. This lamp sold on October 1, 2011 from Kitty Hawk, NC for $2,995.  There were 4 bidders who placed 10 bids. All images in this post are from eBay, user sobercindy.

eBay completed item screenshot for the Rougier tube lamp.

The lamp was described as follows:

This mushroom shaped Rougier tube lamp is awesome and it is in excellent working condition, the switch and wiring are both very good! There are some stains on the pvc as one would expect in a normal non-smoking environment. The height of the lamp is 22-23” including the base (it measures 6 ¼” x 6 ¼”), which is black and brass. The brass has some minor pitting and scratches, a good polishing could make it look like new, otherwise it is in very good condition. The removable opening on the back is attached by two screws that are easily removed to complete the changing of bulb. The metal label “Rougier” is attached on the back of the base and on the bottom is the “Made in Canada” label. Circa 1960-1970s.
