This pendant light is made from a Quaker Oats tins from the 1990s. It would hang sweetly over a table, counter, or desk or in that dark corner where you're always wishing you had a light.

A variety of nice vintage graphics adorn the outside, and the inside is painted white, to reflect the light softly (even a CFL).

It can be swagged and plugged in, or hardwired to your house electrics (additional parts needed for this; please consult a knowledgeable electrician). To have a switch added for plugging in, select the "With switch" option. It will be installed 20" from plug end unless you prefer a different placement. Contact me with requirements.

- About 4" deep by 7" in diameter.
- Cord is 15+ feet long, white, round, plastic.
- Some hardware for hanging as plug-ins included, but you may need more.
- Takes standard base bulbs, incandescent, LED, or CFL; 75 watts is probably the maximum you'd want to use with an incandescent. Complimentary CFL bulb included.

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.
