RARE VINTAGE CAST IRON FLEXIBLE ARM DESK LAMP WITH DOG FIGURE AND TRAY - ART DECO STYLE This is a neat and rare vintage cast iron flexible arm desk or reading lamp with a dog figure and tray. The lamp also works very well. I am not sure of the manufacture or the exact year it was made but it is definitely very old. It has a very unique art deco style and side positioned glass frost white globe. The base and the flexible arm are both made of cast iron. The flexible arm uses multiple ball and socket joints for its movement. The flexible arm is a little loose in some positions but all in all works great. The power cord appears to have been replaced at some point with a clear two strand cord but it is also aged and still uses a vintage two prong plug. I'm not sure what the original intended use of the tray was, but I could see it holding small items on a desk or possibly even an ash tray. The dog figure appears to be a German Shepherd. The base measures approx. 10" long x 5" wide, stands approx. 16" tall in its normal position, and the flexible arm is approx. 12" long. The glass globe measures approx. 5" in diameter. The lamp weighs approx. 8 pounds. There is green felt both on the bottom of the lamp and inside the round tray. Buyer pays actual USPS shipping costs plus a $20.00 handling charge.
