Vintage Fostoria Localite Industrial Task Lamp with Bell Shaped Shade
Here we have a vintage Fostoria Localite industrial light with a bell shaped shade and a mean gun metal color. This articulating lamp with twist and contort via two solid knuckles, shedding light on all the dark corners of your shop. Or living room for that matter.
The Fostoria lamp was made in the 1940s. This one came out of a machinist shop in rural Minnesota. Itblived the life and has the tattoos and scars to prove it. There is patina everywhere, and this is good thing. This isn't your grandmother's task lamp. This bad boy peels rubber by your house at 3am in the morning.
The machinist lamp measures about 23" tall at normal stature (second pic). The bottom leg measures about 8". The middle leg measures 15". The top leg from the knuckle to the end of the shade measures about 10". The light does work. The wiring and plug are original. I used it in my shop without issue but I recommend you perform your own inspection and act accordingly. The on/off switch lands heavy on the off setting and light on the on setting. I see this all the time with old original lights. As stated above, patina covers every inch of this industrial lamp. The knuckles are solid and tight. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship to the continental USA only. Free shipping on this bad boy.
He's tough, dependable and a total rebel without a pause.
