Assembled from old Redwood fencing and glass insulators. Hemingray, Dominion, and Whithall Tatum represented among the 5 examples. The insulators can be rotated to point the embossed codes or Manufacturer's name to the front. Restored the insulators with sulfuric acid so the glass is crystal clear or nearly so. Despite the compliance to modern electrical code, kept to the antique look by using a cloth-covered power cord (approx. 9' long), old looking elevator bolts, bronze washers, and a single-pole toggle switch with a short-throw ball lever. I even used rusty nails and bailing wire; but on the inside, it's made of MDF, 2" trim nails + glue, a new C7 Candelbra base cord set (SPT-1) and double-dipped incandescent C7 120 Volt 2.7 Watt Low Energy Christmas tree bulbs with brass bases. C7 sized LED Christmas lights work just fine in this lamp, and look great if they have a faceted bulb (like a fractal lens to diffuse the LED light source). Felt pads on the bottom 4 corners protect other surfaces. Weighs 17 pounds. Dimensions are 23.25" wide x 6.25" deep x 9.75" tall.
