"Ideal" Ball Jar Lamp


This listing is for an upcycled vintage "Ideal" Ball Jar Table Lamp. I have a number of these ball jars and I wanted to do something a little different. After working through a few designs, I've settled on what you see here. A small hole is cut through the glass near the base using diamond cutting bits, creating a path for the wire that is inconspicuous and aesthetically pleasing. All of the components inside are brass and have an aged antique finish. The bulb is 12 watts which is perfect for accent lighting. Because this is a true vintage ball jar, when the light shines through the imperfections in the glass and the embossed lettering, it casts some incredible shadows.

This light measure 7 1/2" tall and is 4" in diameter.

It is wired with an in-line on/off switch and a antique reproduction button style plug.
