A 1970s American brass palm tree light, formed of three stylised palm trees of different sizes, each with serrated brass leaves, on jointed brass stems, enclosed within a brass square and ebonised box.
Palm tree lights or objects became fashionable in the Art Deco period and this trend continued in the 1970s, representing the exotic Californian or Florida US lifestyle, the use of metals such as this to create a warm and decorative backdrop to any room.
