Brown Folmer & Schwing / Eastman Kodak Table Lamp, Circa 1914

325.00

Folmer & Schwing was founded in 1887 by William F. Folmer and William E. Schwing as a bicycle company in New York City. The first cameras appeared in their catalogue of 1896. Mr. Folmer developed the first Graflex camera in 1898. The company existed as a subsidiary of Eastman Kodak until 1926 when the Kodak was forced to sell off the brand, which later became known as the Folmer Graflex Corporation, and then Graflex Corporation until the company's dissolution in 1973.

This tripod harkens to the Eastman Kodak era, dating back until to 1914. It's a smaller tripod, and though it could be used as a floor lamp, because the maximum 50 inch height is shorter than most modern lamps it is best suited on tables or other raised surfaces. It is recommended to keep the lamp at a collapsed 40 inches, which makes it a great table centerpiece or side lamp. With a stunning art-deco look, we recommend a bell-shaped lamp shade for when you add this piece of history to your home.
