The "Handilamp" is a small but charming desk light popular among collectors of classic industrial fixtures. We'll let the copy from an original ad from the 1937 Hatfield Supply Company catalog in our archive speak for itself:

"Handilamp - The Little Lamp of 1,000 Uses. A collapsible, portable lamp. Can be attached to anything. A universal joint combined with a flexible elbow. May be twisted into practically any position. Cleverly designed to fold up in compact form with bulb inside, easy to carry in traveling bag or trunk." Original finish choices were Mahogany and Ivory, and the Handilamp sold for $2.00.

Price $300.00
