Tube Bulb and Base Lamp
- 60W/120V incandescent bulb
- 1 3/4 inches in diameter
- 4 1/2 inch length
This tubular incandescent bulb has a distinct filament pattern when illuminated. Generating a warm glow at a low light level, the bulb is made with the same technique and materials as early Edison bulbs. Together with the waxed concrete lamp base, this architectural lamp evokes an urban sky-scape, bringing modern lines together with vintage. It is unique by itself and inspired as part of a collection.
