Recycled Insulator Lamp

$55.00

Insular Illumination

Originally used to protect communication and electric lines, this vintage glass insulator has been given another chance to prove itself useful. Its curvy molded shape and transparent color look thoroughly modern when placed atop this leggy table lamp. A happy mix of historic charm and sleek style, the insulator lamp is right at home in almost any room, and makes a truly uncommon gift for both collectors and design enthusiasts. Hand assembled in Nashville, TN.

Comments about Recycled Insulator Lamp:

This lamp looks cute in the picture, but the huge white power cord is nowhere to be seen. It's slightly thicker than one of the legs and hangs down from the middle--there's no way to conceal it or arrange it so that it can't be seen. The black nubs on the legs look tacky.
The only size bulb that fits here is a nightlight bulb. Because the top of the insulator is closed like a dome, not even a chandelier bulb will fit properly in there. When plugged in and lit the effect is underwhelming--I was not expecting a bright lamp, but it really is useless for anything but a nightlight.
On the upside, it's sturdily made and the insulator is lovely.

    Comments about Recycled Insulator Lamp:

    I purchased this because I like unique, recycled things, and while it is uncommon, it's not spectacular. It has an interesting shape, but is smaller than I thought it would be, and I also had to find a small light bulb for it, as it is not compatible with normal light bulbs. It's really more of a night light than a lamp. Not sure it's worth the price.

      I love this lamp. It is nostalgic as my grandfather used insulators in his work for the electric company. I also enjoy the peaceful light it emits. I enjoyed it so much that I bought another for my mom!

      This may be the coolest lamp produced in the history of lamp-dom. There is nothing more that can be said.

        This was a gift for my electrical engineer father. We used to go up to the Mountains in the '60s and find these insulators. He was thrilled with the present, says it works great, and brought back fun memories

            I loved the uniqueness of this lamp (plus everything else in your catalog). I remember those types of insulators....and the light that shines is enough to give a sort of 'romantic' mood to any room plus when just a little light is needed in a room, it is perfect.

            It was given as a gift, and is now in their living room as a decorative piece. Works well for adding light to a dark room, but definitely not enough to read or do work. It looks great though, and definitely adds something nice to the room.

            This is a great little lamp, but it doesn't put out enough light to be used as serious lighting. It's very interesting, though, and I use it as decoration in my house.
