“When I went to Hollywood in 1927, the girls were wearing lumpy sweaters and skirts . . . I was wearing sleek suits and half naked beaded gowns and piles and piles of furs."
Louise Brooks -- Silent Movie Actress

~~~ And you'll LOVE this very unique Dome Lamp... what a great gift this would make for any vintage, antique, Art Deco, Louise Brooks or Silent Movie enthusiast! ~~~

This lamp is an early version of the Conrow Dome Light with a screw-type Edison socket, found only at VictorianMachines. Professor Conrow utilized many Art Deco elements when he designed cabinet and desk lamps for himself and his clients. An extra feature of this version is the 3 Position Switch that lets you select half-bright or full brightness, depending upon your mood.

Professor Conrow was a friend of Louise Brooks (Brooksie) who was also from South-East Kansas, before making her move to New York City and joining the Ziegfeld Follies and achieving silent-movie stardom. It is a family tradition that Professor Conrow (smitten by Brooks in 1924) presented her with this same version of the Dome Lamp. This same lamp was a favorite of Brooks and is rumored to have been used in the 1927 Brooks' silent-movie "Rolled Stockings".

Produced to Professor Conrow's exacting standards, this lamp features a beautifully crafted base and matching glass dome to protect the warm 40 watt Carbon Filament bulb. Often called a "Louise Lamp", this item is perfect for adding warmth and its unique style to any room or office, and is a guaranteed conversation-starter. If you are a serious lamp collector, THIS is the right lamp for you!

Measuring approximately 5" in diameter and standing about 11" high with dome, the Conrow Dome Lamp weighs about 2 lbs and includes the glass dome, 40 watt Art-Deco bulb, and an in-line Off, 20 watt Night Light, 40 watt Full Bright switch with standard 120VAC wall plug.

PLEASE NOTE: the Standing Clockwork Mechanism and Brass Clockwork Mechanism show in photo 1 are NOT included in this listing. Please see my other listings for additional items and accessories. HOWEVER, the Glass Dome & 40 watt Bulb IS included with this listing.
