Rocket Fuel/Java Rocket

I recently caught part of an old "I Love Lucy" clip and saw a percolator just like this one sitting on her fabulous 50s stove. This one has made a convincing transition into a blasting pot of the proverbial "rocket fuel."

This old beauty has been thoroughly cleaned and amended with NEW UL recognized electrical components and upcycled into this beautiful table lamp.

There's a medium base (standard household) socket in the base of the percolator that holds a neon flame/flicker bulb meant to simulate rocket fire.

Inside the perc there's a candelabra base socket with a 7 watt blinking red bulb which lights the old glass dome in the lid, simulating the burning tip of the rocket as it blasts through the atmosphere.

The melmac cup and saucer are suspended by wire that has been curled to simulate steam and hides the electric cord which supplies the 7 watt neon bulb in a new candelabra socket.

All bulbs are controlled by a rotary switch installed in the side of the old coffee can. Six feet of black twisted fabric cord connect the lamp to the nearest outlet.

Approximately 18"H x 18"W. All bulbs, care instructions and a replacement bulb source are included.

NOTE: This is an upcycled creation made from objects that had former service lives. There are minor scars and scratches in the finish. You are purchasing a bit of history that has been repurposed into a provocative piece of lamp art. THIS IS NOT A NEW LAMP.

Please be sure to read my shop policies before purchase.


SHIPPING: FedEx. Please provide a phone number for the shipper. Charges are based on most distant domestic zip code from Atlanta, GA. I charge actual shipping and refund any over payment in excess of 1.50.
