This piece is based around a cast iron industrial/mechanical truck part. The cast iron acts as the touch sensor to easily turn on, off, or dim (3 levels of brightness) the Edison style filament bulb. It can compliment other displayed items like books, but has enough presence to stand alone. It is possible to have a similar (closely matching) pair if currently available that make amazing book ends or matching side table lamps. The base is handcrafted out of solid wood.
