THIS LAMP HAS BEEN SOLD

This is a beautiful Steampunk Lamp created from a genuine vintage voltmeter in my own workshop. The meter casing is Bakelite with a leather handle and is in good condition for its age.

The meter casing, without the terminals and bulb, measures approximately 6 1/2 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches high by 3 1/2 inches deep. The on-off switch on the right hand side is a double pole type for safety. Again, for safety, the lamp fitting is earthed. The unit comes with approximately two metres of black mains lead with a 13 amp plug fused at 3 amps. The bulb, which is supplied, is a screw type, E27 Edision Screw, 60 Watt globe and is readily available from retail outlets.

Please note: the radio in the photograph does NOT come with the lamp! The meter is several decades old and has marks and blemishes which reflect its age.
