Michael Flatley would weep…I am dancing a scissoring jig of joy at winning an ebay auction for Erik Hansen’s Le Klint 335 lamp!

I spied this little beauty a few nights ago listed incorrectly as Panton and breathed a gasp of furtive hope. Could it be?

Born in 1952 from a collaboration between designer Erik Hansen and Le Klint, this scissor lamp currently retails at about £400.

Smug moment — cue drumroll — I got it for £85 including shipping!

Yes, the shade is a little crumpled, but as you can see below, it looks great even with a simple, un-Le Klint shade.

Granted, it is much more fabulous with the intended, pleated shade. Looks like a replacement shade is around 100EUR in Denmark. I’ll worry about this later. Maybe I can fix the shade somehow once I have it in my grubby little trotters.

I have a space all ready and waiting for her…diddlee-dee, diddlee-dum….
