Found Metal Artifact Accent Sculpture Lamp Number 49 / Michael Smith / Milwaukee, WI

This is another in my series of found object sculptures with a vintage style light bulb. This was originally part of a bottle capper tool. I’ve mounted it on a beautiful block of hardwood.

This lamp measures 7″w x 6″d x 18″h. It features a vintage style light bulb.

These bulbs can be found at http://www.1000bulbs.com/category/antique-light-bulbs.
