Bright Copper Lyhne Shaded Task Light, c1912 Item # R1840
Patented in 1910 by Anker Storm Lyhne (963,912), the Lyhne Lamp was made by Beers Sales Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut and sold well throughout the 1910s. In 1915, Lighting Journal reported that "Claims are made for the Lyhne lamp for use in business offices for clerks, officials, and stenographers; likewise for reading at home, playing the piano, etc." With its elegantly knurled adjustment knob and distinctive revolving reflector glare guard, the Lyhne Lamp has become a sought-after example of early-20th-century industrial task lighting.
Why this example has a bright copper finish we couldn't say - that's the way it came to us. Originals were generally brushed brass or mottled antique copper, so this look is certainly unique.
- Notes: Comes with 6' lead and new vintage style plug.
