AEROPLANE LAMP from Europe unlike any other airplane memorabilia that I have ever seen. Lucky for me, I acquired this piece. The photo is before a good cleaning. 1930's to 1940's. I found a place in Manhattan that can replace the bulb, because there is not anything I have seen around here like it. The wingspan is 22 inches so it is a bigger item. What it must have been like to see this when new...

I have just added a new photo of a lamp that someone emailed me about March in 2013, he is from England and that is where he got it. It is in his collection. It is missing the prop and has a cover instead that covers the front of the bulb. He made me an offer to buy mine, although I have not decided to sell yet.

    What kind of a bulb does it use?
  4. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    Thanks David, it uses a bulb that is 12 inches long. I am still able to order replacements if I need them.
  5. walksoftly walksoftly, 1 year ago
    I figured it must have been a long bulb to light it up properly.
  6. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    Yes, but I still don't understand why there is a version like the second photo, kind of strange, especially since the bulb heats it up so much !~
  7. walksoftly walksoftly, 1 year ago
    Yes it is kind of strange.
    You wouldn't be able to touch it when the light was on!
    Still it is a very nice piece.

    Do you mean the propeller bolt or nut ?? I am sure that it is original, thank you.

    No that is a wing nut that is original to the piece also. There are no replacements here, it is all original. It is the same wing nut that is on the plane that is owned by the man from England, which is the 3rd photo.
