Details:
Ingo Maurer Vintage, out-of-production, “Cheerioh” table lamp designed by Susanne and Bernhard Dessecker for Maurer, 1983, Germany.
Paper shade lamp with frosted glass light source supported by adjustable chromed steel uprights.
Support bars with whimsical crimping at top rotate on circular chrome-plated brass discs which travel around channeled perimeter of circular base enabling paper/glass eye above to open and close. 
As sticks rotate forward, eye opens as origami-like form in gampi paper grows slack and opens around frosted light source supported by separate center upright. 
Shade is supported at four corners by cotton string which playfully loops around simple elegant steel hooks which slide up and down three upright bars. 
Electricity is conducted to small 50w halogen bulb by conductivity of center pole freeing lamp architecture of need for wiring and rendering lamp as pure light sculpture.
Lamp exemplifies Maurer's distinctive and liberating approach to lighting subjecting home lighting to whimsy, associative play and questionable function in the service of the imagination.
Chromed steel, frosted glass shade, original gampi paper shade, two new replacement shades included. 
Halogen lighting precludes need for cumbersome wiring to bulb freeing lamp as pure light sculpture.
Lamp has been rewired with high performance Euro Fase Transformer plugged into external table top dimmer.
