This beautiful antique tripod was a gift we received from Roger's production company. We thought it would make a wonderful lamp, so I threaded an attractive pendant socket through the top of the tripod and completed it with an Edison "squirrel cage" lightbulb. It makes for a stunning accent piece in our guest bedroom.
Tip: These squirrel cage lightbulbs are increasingly popular in decorative lamps. If your primary goal with the lamp is to create an accent piece rather than light a room, consider adding an adjustable lamp dimmer. By dimming the lamp by 50% or more, you will save electricity, extend the life of the bulb, and allow your guests to see the detailed of the historic filament.
