Vintage Shop Clamp Light from Old Phillips 66 Station | 1940s
Here we have the most detailed vintage trouble light clamp lamp from an old Phillips 66 station in southern Minnesota. You wanna talk an immediate stunner? Well, here we go. I've never seen this much metallic intricacy in vintage trouble light cage in my life. Zoom in on all the mini springs between each ring. There are so many it looks like a tube. Then you look down and see the double knuckle ball adjusters. And the cherry on top? The wicked adjustable wire clamps at the head of the lamp. They spring open like a scene from Alien. The cage is a twisted industrial cocoon. Unreal.
This little demon lamp lit up an old Phillips station in southern Minnesota during the first of the 20th century. I'm guessing the lamp is from the 30s or 40s. That's when this thing landed in a meteor that cratered the earth.
As for the changing the bulb, you expand the wire clasps along the face of the light. Then pull off the light cap and do the job.
The rare trouble light measures about 13" at its normal stance. The light measures about 9" deep, and the diameter is the 5". As you can see, there is patina everywhere. Every inch. The knuckle adjusters are nice and tight. The glass on the lamp shakes slightly when moving. The wiring is new vintage stock. The metal crate is not included. 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 please). Free shipping on this beast of a vintage shop light.
Simply put, I've never seen another one. It's a grade A, bonafide beast. If it never sells you won't see a tear from my eye.
