Vintage Thermos Rocket Ship Lamp




To infinity and beyond!  This quirky little lamp is made entirely of recycled and vintage parts that have begun their ascent into a new life.

Starting at the top – the “nose cone” of the “rocket ship” is made from a lamp filial, the bottom of an old brass lamp socket, and another miscellaneous lamp part.  The body is, of course, a vintage thermos, probably used in the 1950s. The “burner” on the bottom is a vintage aluminum jello mold and the fins are made from some aluminum sheeting we had lying around.  A reproduction Edison flame bulb completes the ensemble.  The whole assemblage is mounted on a brass candlestick base to which we have added ‘windows’ so that it looks like a flying saucer.  Great for the space mad youngster (or oldster) in your life!

Comes with a candelabra socket, approximately 6 ft of black vinyl cord with in-line on/off switch and a 15 watt reproduction Edison bulb as shown.

Please be sure to read the safety information before purchase.
