1920s Upcycled Table Lamp / Cast Iron & Copper

5 Mar

IMG_3483 IMG_3484

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.

Repurposed Crouse Hinds Industrial Cage Table Lamp

12 Aug

Industrial, machine age, steampunk style hand made table lamp. This is a one off lamp, made from a vintage Crouse Hinds industrial explosion proof light cage from the 1930s-40s. Original galvanized steel cage with original glass. Very well built. Glass globe threads into base, cage threads into base then secures with a set screw.

Lamp base was made from a piece of 2″ thick reclaimed wood, stained with a dark “Kona” stain, and sealed with a matte finish varnish. 3/8″ steel rods support the lamp and were painted with a galvanizing finish to match the cage and then clear coated.

All lamp internals and wiring are brand new. New pull cord lamp socket is mounted inside and the lamp is wired with vintage style black twisted cloth covered wire and new two prong plug. Antique reproduction Marconi bulb is included, to finish off the vintage style, but lamp accepts any standard base light bulb.

Upcycled Wrought Iron Garden Floor Lamp

18 Jun

Unique, one of a kind wrought iron floor lamp. Made from a vintage patina’d wrought iron yard decoration. Piece was handmade to look like flowers. The stems are all wrought iron with petals and looks like the flowers were made from old wire wheels. Stem has a rusty colored finish with nice patina. We picked this up as a piece of garden or yard art a few years back at a yard sale, and recently decided that it would make a really cool floor lamp.

We picked up a very heavy brass base awhile back, welded the stem to a threaded coupling and used that to serve as the base. We used vintage reproduction brass colored industrial cage lights which flip open or closed and thought they were the perfect addition to continue the original maker’s flower theme, but add a nice industrial look. Sockets are black bakelite, with brass pull chains, so each bulb can be illuminated individually. All vintage black twisted cloth covered wire was used as well as a vintage reproduction plug. Three different styles of 40 watt vintage bulbs are used and included. Lamp stands 52″ tall. For sale in our Etsy shop.

Repurposed Model T Ford Pendant Light

20 Feb

Pendant light made from a nearly 100 year old side marker light from a Model T Ford. These were used on Model T Fords in the mid to late teens. I believe these burned oil or kerosene for light, it’s been converted to accept a standard candelabra base bulb. The lamp body is in all original condition, original glass (one pane has a crack halfway through, but it’s still solid and intact) and very nice patina. This is a genuine barn find where and had been stored for 30 plus years. It’s been cleaned up, but not restored. As you can see in photos, there are two clear glass windows, one of which is hinged and opens to allow replacement of the bulb. One side, has a small round window with red glass and the back side is solid.

This will make a nice accent piece for your den or bar area. The light is prewired with 12′ of cord, standard plug and an inline switch. Designed to plug in for use as a swag lamp. Can also be hardwire into a ceiling box if desired or used as a table top lamp. Available in our Etsy shop. $125.
