ZANDT LAMP | VINTAGE COLLECTIBLES

A few years ago, ⁣while antique shopping in Miami, Kevin came across one of his Zandt reading lamp at MODERN EPIC ANTIQUES, and was surprised the price tag was four times the original price it sold for in the 1980s and purchased. Recently, Dan’s Den, Los Angeles, sold the same reading Lamp for $1,200.
