Antique desk, table or task lamp. Lampette by Lightolier, catalog #7313. Base is made from grey metal, spelter or Leanti. Swivel joint, socket and shade are made of Brass. Patent date on the sphere joint is 1913.
The lamp was available right through the 1920's. Hard to find little lamp. Originally offered in Myrtle Green or Bronze, this 1 is in Bronze applied finish.
There are stress cracks or splits throughout, nature of grey metal, especially after 85 years or so. Structurally sound, can be used with confidence.Also, the base has a slight bend or wave to it which is shown in the pics. All surfaces are clean, no dirt or dust accumulation. Small specks of white paint can be seen on the base, I did not attempt to remove.
New modern replacement wiring along with a period correct plug end. As seen in the Lightolier catalog the lamp was originally equipped with a socket adapter plug end, I chose to install a conventional plug end for practicality. Tested safe, ready for use. Overall height of the base is 8", shade is 5 3/4" across. Feel free to ask questions.
