T-C-3 / Gone

This one didn't last long before the auction was ended early.  

We are offering this Mid Century Modern lamp. It is as modern looking as I have seen. The lamp seems to be made of aluminum or some other light material with wooden ball feet.. it measures 23" tall by 12" in diameter at the top. It would look wonderful in any mid century home. I do not have any other information on the lamp so please ask any questions. I have entered a shipping cost of $25.00 due to the size. I will refund any shipping cost overages.

On May-08-12 at 13:14:19 PDT, seller added the following information:A fellow ebayer has said this lamp was designed by James Harvey Crate and is model T-3-C.  As I have said earlier in the description. The lamp has been in the owners possession since the Sixties.
This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available.
Boo hoo. It would have been interesting to see what it would have gone for.

They have gone for a lot at auction. One went for $19k in 2004. 
The most recent auction I found was a pair that sold for $6k at Wright. One passed there at 2011.
