Heavy Industrial Scissor Lamp with Blue Mercury Glass Shade

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

If you're a lamp collector than you already know how rare this scissor and shade are. The casting is signed W.D. Allison Co. This style is the strongest and most complex scissor arm for medical and Industrial use. It can extend to over four foot long. This is one of the few lamp arms that can also adjust up and down. The hollow 9 inch diameter blue mercury glass shades are very hard to find. These blue shades were used by jewelers to enhance the color of a diamond.
