This is a wonderful piece of suburban folk art and mid-century Americana. It is a vintage 'home made' table lamp incorporating an actual working electric company meter. When the lamp is on the meter actually runs! The man who made it actually worked as a meter reader for the electric company in the 1950's and 1960's.
