1920s Upcycled Table Lamp / Cast Iron & Copper

This is an Eagle brand 1920’s vintage table lamp / radiant heater. These were originally used as small space heaters during the early 20th century. The original coil heating element is included and screws in to the standard socket to also function as a heater. We removed the heating element and replaced it with a vintage Edison style filament bulb for a warm, dramatic effect. Any standard based bulb will fit, however. The lamp’s base is made of heavy cast iron and the shade and cage are both made of copper. The light was cleaned and the copper lightly polished but still retains all of its original patina. Original cloth covered wire was kept, but the plug was replaced with a vintage reproduction.

Very cool and unique piece of history and makes a great addition to your office, living room, etc.

Available in our Etsy shop.

Size: 14″ diameter 19.5″ tall
