This fun upcycled lamp is made from a vintage design Cracker Jack tin. It has a white background with red and blue graphics: same design on the two wider sides, different designs on the narrow sides (the one not shown is mostly type). Top is bright red. Shade is white fabric decorated with various sizes and styles of white, red, and blue buttons.
This lamp would be very sweet in a guest room, sewing room, or farmhouse kitchen.
- 5" x 6" footprint. Shade is about 11 inches across.
- 17" tall to top of shade.
- On/off switch on socket.
- Takes a standard base bulb, up to 60 watts.
- Shade sits on the socket.
- Base is weighted for stability and has clear plastic feet to protect table top.
- Buttons are securely glued on, but nonetheless I do not recommend using this lamp where small children might be unsupervised.
- Both tin and buttons have some age, including minor rust on bottom edge of tin.

I insist on insurance. That cost is included in shipping.
Most of my pieces are made from vintage objects on the outside, with new functional parts inside. This means they will show signs of their age, which is part of their appeal, but the works will last for a long time. Unfortunately, photographs can unintentionally either disguise or exaggerate the wear on a piece. I encourage you to take this into consideration when making the decision to buy. If you find you aren't happy with your choice, you have 14 days in which to return it for a refund of the item price, not including shipping.
If you have an object you think would make a good lamp, I may be able to help. Use the link to request a custom order or drop me a note. Custom orders are subject to a 20% nonrefundable deposit, as noted above.
