Trolley Wheel Base Upcycled Red Tractor Light Desk Lamp
This old red tractor light was re-wired with a 120v E26 socket and a toggle on/off switch. The cord is new twisted cloth covered and red. The wall plug and light socket are both new. This is a very cool desk lamp and really does a great job of illuminating exactly what you want lighted without lighting up the whole room. It sits on top of a early to mid-century trolly wheel and axle. The lamp arms articulating movement is accomplished with the help of a vintage Fisher lab clamp. A Joslyn industrial electric insulator is used as a counter balance. All other parts are handmade and the whole lamp is clear coated or waxed as needed.
Approximately 22" tall

Most of our luminaries utilize a vintage cornerstone piece like an industrial lamp shade, an iron base or some other intriguing artifact. These cornerstone pieces are then mated with other vintage artifacts or modern materials to create an intriguing lamp or light. A few of the lamps and lights are made completely or in part of up-cycled or re-purposed items while some are made from scratch using raw material. Because vintage and recycled parts are used it is common to find imperfections such as scratches, chips or other signs of aging and wear. However, all the electrical parts are replaced with new parts or inspected for function and safety before being used to construct a luminary. Regardless of the materials used each item is built, re-built or re-finished as needed for appearance and safety. All our luminaries are works of art, but also functional and safe when used correctly. You can buy knowing that someone with technical expertise has assembled a safe luminary for your use. Please view the pictures to judge the actual condition of each illumination as each picture is part of the item description.
