Vintage Industrial Lamp, Fostoria Light, Swing Arm, Yellow & Black, DK 40VA 120VAC, Adjustable Metal, Steel Tube, Home Decor, Wall Mount

$588.40 $735.50

The slightly distressed and aged yellow and black metal Fostoria swing-arm lamp is in very good to great condition. The adjustable swing-arm dock lamp is also in great working condition. There is an on/off toggle on the back of the bulb housing along with a manual push-in knob that is attached to a spring-loaded bulb socket base on the interior. When the knob is held in the porcelain bulb-socket moves outward approximately 1" closer to the rim of the bulb housing. Given that there is no way of locking the knob into the pushed-in position, it is most likely designed to briefly increase the area of illumination and/or to aid in bulb installation. The slightly distressed gray-silver sticker inside the bulb housing shows a production date of October 3rd, 1996 along with a number 4. In addition, the caution sticker also shows that this lamp uses a type R bulb up to 300 Watts Max. The Fostoria Industries lamp gets power through a black high-quality approximately 58" long water-resistant 3/18 electrical cord connected to a porcelain bulb-socket on the interior of the bulb housing which has a 600 Watt 660 Volt bulb-socket rating.

The black and yellow badge on the side of the outer 1.5" square-tube steel arm has the following information to the right of the Fostoria logo:


As can be seen in the photos, this gorgeously distressed and aged adjustable Industrial swing-arm lamp can be adjusted to several different lengths and positions. However, the amount of use one can get from this lamp is solely dependent on its mounting method. Hence, the thick steel four-hole square mounting plate at the back of the rear arm.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the mounting bolts, plastic zip-ties, and light bulb in the photos are not included in this listing as they were used for photography purposes only. In addition, the original three-pronged plug on the electrical cord was missing the ground-pin - most likely because the lamp was used in an older style receptacle, so a new and much safer yellow Leviton three-prong ground-plug has been installed on the cord.

There are a couple of ding-like dents on the lamp - the most noticeable is the one on the lower inside of the bulb housing. Other than this, there are no breaks, cracks, deep dents, or repair places on this incredibly gorgeous Fostoria dock lamp. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the lamp - mainly in the form of distress, wear, small scratches and/or rub marks on the arms, joints, hardware, and bulb housing. The electrical cord is in great working condition and has a new yellow Leviton three-prong plug on the end. Also, the years of distress and wear have given the black and construction-like yellow color of this beautiful lamp a pricelessly aged character that only time can produce. While there are some areas on the lamp that have a slightly darker "handled" appearance that might seem to simply "wipe-off" with a little effort, they have become part of the surface color. However, even though the lamp has been lightly washed with soap and water, it might be possible that a harsher cleaning agent could be used. Along with this, the black electrical cord is very clean to the touch. In addition, while there are square black plugs in each end of the outer square-tube steel arm, the rear square-tube arm does not have plugs.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeously aged and distressed Fostoria Industries adjustable swing-arm lamp are many. The living area or man-cave would be enhanced by the addition of this energetically colored wall-mount accent lamp. Also, the bedroom or crafting area would welcome this high-quality adjustable lamp for its well-made multiple-angle design and industrial-construction-zone charm. In addition, the growing collection of vintage lamps would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this slightly distressed and aged yellow and black October 3rd, 1996 Fostoria Industries adjustable indoor dock lamp.

The collector will appreciate this gorgeous metal Fostoria swing-arm lamp for its very good to great condition, high-quality craftsmanship, heavy-duty well-built design, array of possible adjustments and angles, slightly distressed and aged yellow and black color palette, industrial-construction-zone charm, and beautiful overall appearance.

***Free Shipping in the USA

***Shipping will include insurance

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
