I'd love to know more about this lamp too. I purchased it about 15 years ago at an antique store up in Guerneville, CA. I'd like to know how old it is and whether it's collectible or even usable. i just liked the shape, color and style of it. Sort of semi-deco / semi-industrial look to it. ??

    dont laugh now, i used to see (something like) these hanging inside the old fishing docks here in Okieville.

    It's quite unique, the upper housing looks like it is made to dissipate heat, is there a ballast in it?
  3. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 2 years ago
    i'm not sure what that means. it's not that heavy, so maybe not?

    A ballast is a type of power supply to bring the voltage up for a bulb such as mercury vapour, or metal halide, they can get quite warm.
    By the cord & decorative finial on top, & what looks like a standard bulb socket, it is definitely not original.
    It still has a great look to it.
    Hope that answers your question

    thanks walksoftly. that's very useful info. i knew i'd seen them around before, but couldn't place it. 1stdibs is a great site for finding comps at high retail price, don't you think? also for generally obscure, but interesting pieces.
