"I find out what the world needs. Then, I go ahead and invent it." ~~ Thomas A. Edison

~~~ What a great gift this would make for any vintage, antique, Edison, Victorian, Steampunk enthusiast! ~~~

This lamp is an Edison-Conrow Vario Lamp Base Number V-26 found only at VictorianMachines. Professor Conrow modified Edison's original E-26 base to include a knob to adjust the brightness of the lamp. The original Edison Lamp Bases had only screw-terminals or a simple On-Off switch, whereas, the Professor Conrow's Vario version lets the user adjust the exact brightness desired.

Produced to Professor Conrow's exacting standards, this lamp features an improved 3000 hour, 60 watt incandescent bulb based on Edison's early production lamp design. Additionally, since this lamp and base use the standard Edison E26 screw-base configuration, any modern light bulb may be used in the Edison-Conrow base (maximum 75 watts). Please note that this Vario base will NOT work with modern CFL type bulbs... only incandescent bulbs.

An additional feature of the Edison-Conrow lamp is the extended length 5 foot, cloth covered, original style, cord and molded 120VAC plug.

This lamp is the perfect desk light in your office or room and a guaranteed conversation-starter. If you are a serious Lamp Collector, THIS is the right lamp for you!

Photo 5 shows the original ADC Vario control knob. ADC NOS components are used where possible. (A.D.Conrow's ADC Radio Lab parts are one of a kind and almost impossible to find today.)

All components are UL listed and approved. Additional Edison Style E26 bulbs are available in either 40 watt or 60 watt configuration (please see other listings). The unit is approximately 5.5" wide, 7.5" deep and 10" high, weighing about 2 lbs.

PLEASE NOTE: the Clock Mechanism and original laboratory notes shown in photo 1 are NOT included in this listing. Please see my other listings for additional items and accessories.
