Low Profile for good chairside reading…Also desks and nightstands….Timeless Americana design which has been manufactured in various formats since the mid-1920's. I have no doubt it will also be manufactured fifty years from now. Quoizel's reproduction features a hand-sewn beige softback shade and a Palladian Bronze finish on all metalwork. Takes 150-watt bulb on 3-way socket switch which makes this an excellent reading lamp. 20" tall, shade is 15" wide at bottom, 8" high, 10" wide at top. One of the great lamp designs of all time.
