This desk lamp features an extremely functional base, in high Art-Deco style. It has three impressions to hold pens or pencils and two tiny wells for office trinkets. The fixture is a dark silver color–almost bronze–and there are light vestiges of what looks like rust in places. We’ve paired it with a milk-glass shade that does have a small chip along its front. The Gritty Goose-Neck has new wiring, an updated plug-in, and new cardboard insulator.
