6 way vintage floor lamp with base switch

$310.00

Description

This 1930’s floor lamp has been completely restored for safe use in your home. The 10″ IES opal glass shade is vintage as shown by the fiery rim. The vintage floor lamp stands 60″ tall with a “kill switch” in the base – which means if that base button is used, it will turn on or off whatever lights were on when the lamp was last used. It is quite a fun feature for floor lamps – especially if you have a certain way you like to light yours up.

In the restoration process, all original parts were reused and rewired with new wire. 6-way floor lamps are distinctly different based on the 3-arm cluster and the base. Check out the decorative 3-arm cluster on this beauty. The round base includes the on / off switch. The numerous layers of paint in the painting process gives this lamp a deep rich look.

The floor lamp is decked out with custom cut drip style candle covers that match the antique gold finish of the lamp and frosted 25W torpedo bulbs. The rayon cord color was chosen to match the lamp finish. The cloth covered cord matches the period of the lamp. A replica polarized vintage plug was wired on at the end of the cord and the plug is complete with a new insulator. The mogul socket was replaced and we saved and cleaned the original vintage Bakelite turn knob that has the metal threaded base. The sockets on the three candle cluster were all refurbished and rewired in and new card board insulators added.

The original 100 / 200 / 300 watt mogul base bulbs work and we always have those available for purchase as we know they are hard to find. Customers oftentimes choose to purchase an adaptor so a regular based LED 21W bulb (200 watt replacement) can be used to save energy and to keep the room from heating up. This bulb almost matches the light output (lumens) of the 300 level of the 3-way incandescent bulb. The LED bulbs we sell match the 2700k color of our beloved incandescent light we so love using in our vintage lamps.

This vintage floor lamp has been restored by Cindee and Sherry and safe for use in your home or office.
