Amaretti tin pendant light

Description
This lamp is an old tin converted into a drop light. It would hang sweetly over a bar or counter, or you could hang it in that dark corner where you're always wishing you had a light.



Outside colors are red, orange, white, and gray. I painted the inside white, to reflect the light softly (even a CFL), and drilled holes in the top for ventilation.



Details:



- Shade measures 6" square by 6 1/2" high.

This lamp is an old tin converted into a drop light. It would hang sweetly over a bar or counter, or you could hang it in that dark corner where you're always wishing you had a light.



Outside colors are red, orange, white, and gray. I painted the inside white, to reflect the light softly (even a CFL), and drilled holes in the top for ventilation.



Details:



- Shade measures 6" square by 6 1/2" high.

- Different designs on "front" and "back"; same design on the other two sides.

- Cord is 15' long. No switch, but will work with a plug-in dimmer cord.

- Takes a standard base bulb. Cord set recommends 60 watt max for incandescent; best to use CFL bulbs if you want more light, as they stay cooler as well as using less energy. (Photos show it with CFL.)



Note: Can be hardwired to your house electrics, but fittings are not included for this. Please consult a knowledgeable electrician.
