Everything Old is New Again

27" deep by 20" wide, 4' deep with chain and canopy. Click to enlarge photo.

Never having considered converting a hanging oil lamp to electric (previously considered self-imposed sacrilege), I was newly excited by the concept of applying this unique twist to an old theme. By inverting the arms formerly hanging below the shade that supported the font cap and burner apparatus, those mechanisms are now neatly secured in place above it. A dimmer switch socket was installed and the assembly suspended from an inverted bronze table lamp base arranged in conjunction with several other vintage elements. Finally, the shade band was once again decked out in prisms.
