Did You Know: The George Nelson Bubble Lamps Have Been Around Since 1952
George Nelson created the Bubble Lamp line for Howard Miller in 1952. Howard Miller continued to sell the line throughout the late 1970′s after which they were discontinued.
George Nelson never named the different lamp designs and they were simply given numbers by Howard Miller. A large Saucer Lamp was simply sold under Bubble Lamp H 727 a Large Ball lamp was sold under Bubble Lam H-725.
Howard Miller sold a variety of accessories for the lamps including a tripod base of satin chrome or brass finish steel, swing arms, and adjustable pulley fixture. Another interesting point to note is that all Bubble Lamps were available as Crisscross versions. In order to get a criss cross pattern from your dealer, you would have simply specified the order with a “CC” after the lamp number.
