An old, retired light from a South Carolina low country dock was salvaged, gutted, and paired with a vintage 1950's era factory spool from Atlanta. The spool adds some much needed wood to the aluminum fixture, and also allowed me to replace the giant warehouse ballast housing with a porcelain socket that accepts normal sized bulbs.

It's finished with white cloth covered lamp cord, white strain relievers, and a white ceiling canopy. All ready to be hard-wired in your home junction box. If you would rather have a plug on the business end just let me know.

With this piece I'll include a nearly extinct, but not banned, plain old 65 watt incandescent bulb, valued at approximately $0.32. Sure, I love filament bulbs as much as, more, more than the next guy, but these bulbs are the new old. You heard it here first.

The fixture includes @ 4' of white cloth covered lamp cord, currently hangs 36" from the ceiling, with a fixture length of @ 20" and a shade diameter of @ 14.5".

Thanks for looking,
