    1950s Amplex Trombolite Telescoping Swivel Lamp

    This was sitting in the bar amongst other overflow of electronics pieces. Dad had a lot of stuff.

    I saw a similar lamp, that was a clamp base, that looked very similar in color and shape. That lamp was dated 1958. My lamp is a little beat up, but in working condition.

    The lamp telescopes and the head swivels. Adjustable from 25" to 40". Base is 8" in diameter.
    This lamp has a weighted base. From what I've read the ones with weighted bases are rarer than the clamp base models.

    Lamp has a fluorescent ring bulb and a incandescent bulb. Each are operated by separate switches, but you can power off both bulbs with a single switch. Both bulbs are still in working condition.
