Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Offered for consideration is a large 1960s mineral oil rain lamp featuring the goddess Venus and fake foliage.

The lamp is in perfect working order!

All the strands the oil drips down are accounted for and all strands produce proper "dripping" when the lamp is in operation. Overall the metal parts of the lamp present quite clean. The only detail of note is some very slight surface oxidation on the bottom metal part of the lamp.

appx 10.5" diameter x 30" high (including decorative loops)

plugs into an existing outlet and has an inline rotary switch located towards the end of the cord

The original wiring seems to be in good working order. There are no apparent cracks or exposed wire in the cording. The rotary switch and socket are operating properly. The above being said, it is always suggested that buyers have a professional examine original wiring on vintage lamps prior to use.

there is appx 2 feet of chain with a long 12+ foot cord to hang the lamp from.

The oil has been removed for shipment. It measured about 32 ounces in total. The buyer will need to purchase new mineral oil from Target, Wal-Mart or any drug store. Mineral oil is very inexpensive and readily available. It is easily poured into the basin of the lamp with no disassembly required.

DO NOT OPERATE THE LAMP UNTIL THE OIL HAS BEEN REPLACED. Doing this could burn out the motor.

Even though the oil has been removed, there is still oil residue on the faux foliage, on the goddess, the bottom of the pan and on the inner parts of the lamp.

The light bulb seen will be included with the sale of this lamp.
