Do you know what this is?

Do you know what this is?heat lamp to table lamp

It has a pretty cast iron foot-print.

It can look up !!!

                It can look down !!!

It has a lovely reflective face.

... and  a pretty black handle so you can carry it around.

             ... a pretty backside too.

remove the heating coil ... 
add a Edison-style light bulb ...

and you have turned a Vintage heat lamp 

into a very pretty industrial table lamp.                                                                                                                                        

Thanks for the visit ... 
Hope you will let me know you were here.

  5. I knew what it was but I've never seen one quite so charming; love the color and the beautiful base. It's perfect on your night stand.

  6. I sell every one of these heaters I can find. They all have lovely patina and unique shapes. Most I have found have copper reflective shields. I love this one in green. It is nifty! Do you rewire them first? I usually cut the ancient wiring off before selling.
