    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.

This lamp can be seen prominently near 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 but immeasurably important in the landmark film 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 matching lampshade is included for display but was not used during filming. Electronics untested. In vintage very good condition. Provenance: Cinema Mercantile Co. liquidation sale, Los Angeles, October 2, 1982.
