The lamp is also fitted with a vintage style brown braided flex cable with an inline switch, a metal antique style cord grip, and a 3amp British plug. All fittings are genuine British parts, all hand-wired to a high, professional standard.
To give this upcycled vintage blowlamp added weight and stability, it has been secured to a plinth made from an old piece of distressed wood
Please note that this is a vintage upcycled item and there will be signs of wear and tear, marks, scratches, or rust in areas, which all adds to the distressed characteristics of the lamp.
All electrical work is new and has been carried out to a professional standard.
