    Casablanca pierced brass Moroccan floor lamp from Rick's Café Américain. (Warner Bros., 1942) Vintage original reticulated Moroccan floor lamp highly visible in Rick's Café Américain, the iconic central setting of one of the greatest American movies of all time, Casablanca. Consisting of a hollow pierced brass lamp standing 70 in. tall with a base measuring approx. 19 in. round. This lamp can be seen prominently by the iconic front doors of the café as well as the main room with Sam's piano. This historic decorative set piece is not only beautiful in and of itself and immeasurably important in the landmark film, but as an art piece that contributes boldly to the themes and motifs at play in doors, floor tiles and the geometric light lamps throw throughout the design of the entire project. Exhibiting expected age and patina. The vintage matching lampshade is included but was not used during filming. Electronics present and working. In vintage very good condition. Provenance: Cinema Mercantile Co. liquidation sale, Los Angeles, October 2, 1982. Cinema Mercantile Co., one of the oldest and largest suppliers of film and TV set decorations, supplied items to Warner Bros. Studios during the production of Casablanca.
