Edison Table Lamp - Railway sleeper #64
Our Edison table lamps combine recycled timber with edgy industrial materials, which reflect New Zealand’s commercial and agricultural history.
They provide statement lighting to enhance your room and stimulate discussion.
Each lamp is unique. This lamp has been created using a piece of reclaimed jarrah used as a railway sleeper. Cleaning revealed deep erosion, possibly because it has been buried for some of its life.
Much admired, it is a large, dramatic piece which Sue has nicknamed the crocodile, although in some lights, the spike reminds me of Loch Ness Monster emerging from the depths!
The timber is Australian Jarrah, imported and used along with other Australian hardwoods in late nineteenth century New Zealand for commercial and industrial construction. This piece is likely to be well over 100 years old.
- The dimensions of the lamp base are: length 58 cm, width 22 cm, height (including bulb) 25cm.
- Weight: 8 kg
The history of the timber has been retained by incorporating construction elements, bolt holes and surface marks while still exposing and polishing the beautiful end grain.
Attempts are made to retain any ironwork (bolts and nails) that are connected to the specific piece of timber.
Natural beeswax is used to polish the wood and any ironwork.
The vintage E27 40W screw fit Edison light bulb, which comes with your lamp, has a life of about 1500 hours and can be easily changed for any number of similar bulbs that are widely available in New Zealand.
Each lamp is tagged and tested. It has a long lead and an in-line switch.
We recommend a maximum 40W bulb.
Your unique Edison table lamp has a felt pad on the base to protect any surface you choose to put it on.
We have a $5 flat fee for delivery in the Wellington area, and a (free) click and collect service from Plimmerton, Wellington and Greytown, Wairarapa.
Delivery charges outside of Wellington will be calculated at check-out.
