1960s ‘Flying saucer’ lampshade with moulded white plastic base and red metal top

A rare surviving flying saucer inspired red and white lampshade with star pattern and red plastic cones.

The top of the light is painted pressed steel and the base is white plastic which is in excellent condition.

A white fabric cable and flat white retro ceiling rose (supplied) complement the shade.

During the late 1950s and 1960s architecture, cars, and gadget design took on a  space flight inspired look reflecting a collective confidence about space flight and the future.

New materials such as plastic, dramatically influenced post war designers. Plastic was used for its own qualities rather than to imitate other materials.
