This large industrial pillow block bearing was found at a salvage junkyard in Los Angeles, CA. It sits atop a hardwood base made of oak and purpleheart inlay (natural wood – no stains used).
NOTE: This is a LARGE piece! Please note the dimensions below!
Simply tap the bearing to enjoy a warm glow of light at the brightness you desire! Each tap will increase the bulb brightness (3 levels), and will not shut off until tapped a 4th time.
Entirely hand-crafted in my shop (with exception to the bulb!)
Metal bearing securely attached to base via discreet hardware (no adhesives used)
Vintage 60W 'Edison' light bulb (Included)
Custom 7' long vintage style brown/tan cotton fabric cord w/ 2 prong plug
3 way dimmer switch wired in base (Low-Medium-High-Off)
Base bottom features surface pads & access panel (w/ date of manufacture & serial #)
Wood and metal have been properly sealed for safe use in your home
All electronic hardware is UL-listed and rated at 120V only
Beautiful art and functionality combined! For reference, at the lowest (1st tap) setting, these will emit a warm soft amber glow that is enough light to navigate a dark room without disturbing other sleepyheads. The highest setting (3rd tap) is bright enough to comfortably read nearby. Although the bulbs are rated at 60W, they generally emit the light output of a 40W bulb (some wattage is lost to heat due to the nature of a tungsten filament bulb).
