The heavy construction of this brass light allows this piece to weigh in at 20 pounds. From top to bottom, the light measures 12 1/4 inches tall. The base measures 4 3/4 inches square with the widest section of the light housing measuring about 6 1/4 inches wide. The undamaged glass globe is about 5 inches tall.
To access the bulb, the top section of the light spins free off the base. The top section that spins off as one piece consists of the cage, the globe, and the large cast bronze section just below the globe.
We have installed a new bulb socket that accepts standard house bulbs. Additionally, we have installed new wiring including a ground wire that exits the light from the center of the base.
Besides being used as a ceiling or post light, this light could have a cord added to it and be used as a very impressive desk or counter top light.
