    Since it’s still being produced, I imagine it isn’t dead. I like it.

    Is this the same Art Donovan who was an NFL lineman in the 1960s and occasionally appeared on Letterman?

    You got it Slick….

    It IS a Christams Tree stand! An antique, that I picked up at a junk store and painted black & gold.

    The Glass globe was a close-out item at William Sonoma ( I don’t know what the hell it was intended for.)

    I put a clear, tube bulb inside, but the glass envelope disappeared. So I added a light satin finish on it so as not to obscure the filament.

    The cord is antique bronze, not plastic.

    Thnaks to all for the input.

    @#12.PEEQUE- Close your eyes. Quick!

    @#13. Thank you, Tenn.

    Very good looking lamp, but major fails on the plastic cord. To work in a genre so strictly defined by materials and to stop short (after all the other work) is just bizarre.

    I demand gears!

    Nay, nay! That cord is not encased in plastic; it’s a live, rusted wire pumping 660 volts. This lamp is so punk it’ll electrocute anyone silly enough to unplug it.

    the central part of the lamp I know what it is but can’t quite remember.

    It’s driving me nuts.

    It’s a Christmas tree stand, in cast iron.
    Normally those flipped-out prongs are beneath
    the threaded ring, which is what forces them into
    the trunk of the tree.
