Here we have an handmade articulating industrial lamp that is screaming "OVERBUILT." This vintage light is a beast in every conceivable way. Let's start with the hand crank used to flip, extend, reverse, and twist. I absolutely love adjusting the beast solely to grip and rip it. Hours of crazy fun. Then you have the poses. I provided a few of them in the pics, and there are many more to explore. You have to love when a rare piece of industrial decor is also a fully functioning amusement park. Step right up!
The rare vintage lamp was handmade by an architect somewhere in the Midwest, likely in the 1940s.
The vintage industrial light measures about 26" at its normal position. However, if you want to show off, fully extend the beast to tower over more everything (see pic). As described above, the hand crank adjuster works great. The light works fine, and the wiring is original. As with any vintage light, assess the wiring yourself and act however you see fit. There is perfect patina from age and use throughout the entire piece. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO Boxes). The vintage table lamp will be disassembled and shipping in the two base pieces. Free shipping on the unusual industrial lamp.
It's the ultimate Frankenstein beast of a light. Overbuilt to the tilt.
