*VINTAGE 1960'S OIL RAIN LAMP*

YOU ARE LOOKING AT A FANTASTIC HANGING OR TABLE OIL RAIN LAMP, FROM THE 60'S.

MANUFACTURED BY JOHNSON INDUSTRIES.

RAIN LAMPS WERE INVENTED BY THE LATE Darrell H. Johnson (1-6-06), WHO FOUNDED JOHNSON ENTERPRISES, ALSO KNOWN AS JOHNSON INDUSTIRES. IN 1957, DARRELL JOHNSON FORMED JOHNSON INDUSTRIES IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, A COMPANY THAT MANUFACTURED RAIN LAMPS. BASIN IS MADE OF SOME TYPE OF METAL (NOT EXACTLY SURE OF KIND). INSIDE, STANDS A LOVELY HALF NUDE GREECIAN GODDESS, AWAITING THE RAIN. T ARE 18 HOLES IN THE TOP AND BOTTOM, WITH ALL OF THE CURTAIN STRINGS STILL PROPERLY ATTACHED WHICH ALLOW FOR PROPER OIL FLOW DOWN THE CURTAIN. INSIDE THE TOP OF THE BASIN ARE TWO LABELS. ONE IS A CAUTION LABEL WHICH READS "CAUTION: BECAUSE OF FIRE HAZARDS, USE ONLY 60 WATT BULB OR LESS. LAMP RATED 1 AMP., 120 VOLT, 60 HERTZ JOHNSON INDUSTRIES." THE SECOND LABEL READS "JOHNSON INDUSTRIES SERIAL NUMBER 14376" WHEN THE LAMP IS FILLED WITH MINERAL OIL (CAN BE PURCHASED ONLINE, OR EVEN AT WAL-MART) AND TURNED ON, THE OIL CASCADES DOWN THE THE STRINGS, OR CURTAIN, TO FORM A LOVELY REPLICA OF A LIGHT SLOW RAIN SURROUNDING THE GODDESS. (***THE LAMP TAKES A COUPLE OF MINUTES TO WARM BEFORE OIL BEGINS TO RUN, TYPICAL IN ALL OIL LAMPS***) THE BASIN, AS WELL AS THE GODDESS FIGURE ARE A GOLDEN BRONZE COLOR. NOT SURE WHAT SHE IS MADE OF EITHER. THE TOP OF THE BASIN HAS A FACTORY INSTALLED LOOP FIXTURE FOR HANGING. THE BOTTOM IS FLUSH SO IT CAN ALSO BE USED AS A TABLE TOP LAMP, SIMPLY REMOVE THE CHAIN SURROUNDING THE POWER CORD. BOTH THE POWER CORD AND CHAIN APPEAR TO BE ORIGINAL, AND ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION. T IS ONE SMALL PLACE ON THE LAMP (LOCATED NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE BASIN, WHICH HAS BEEN CHIPPED. I CAN SUPPLY YOU WITH A PHOTO IF REQUESTED. THE PLACE IS SMALL BUT DOES NOT TAKE AWAY FROM OVERALL BEAUTY AND VALUE OF THE LAMP, JUST THOUGHT I WOULD MENTION IT. LAMP CAN BE TAKEN APART AND CLEANED. WINNING BIDDER WILL BE SUPPLIED WITH A TUTORIAL ON HOW TO CLEAN YOUR LAMP, DISASSEMBLY, OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS, AND A BASIC OVERLOOK AT HOW RAIN LAMPS WORK. (WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE SHIPMENT OF THE LAMP AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.) THE POWER CORD TO THE LAMP IS 168" IN LENGTH. THE CHAIN THAT ACCOMPANIES THE CORD IS 142". THE FLORAL ARRANGEMENT IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS WILL BE INCLUDED WITH THE LAMP, AT NO EXTRA COST TO THE WINNING BIDDER. THEY ARE NOT GLUED OR TIED IN, AND CAN BE EASILY REMOVED AND REPLACED WITH AN FLORAL ARRANGEMENT OR IVY DECORATION OF YOUR CHOICE. THIS LAMP WOULD LOOK LOVELY IN A DINING ROOM, SITTING ROOM, PARLOR, BEDROOM, DEN, OR EVEN A FAMILY ROOM. COMES WITH A 60 WATT BULB THAT DOES WORK. **********INSURANCE IS REQUIRED ON THIS ITEM!********** $1.35 PER $50.00 ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
