Modern Desk Lamp with Aircraft Radial Engine Piston Base: This modern industrial style lamp is made using piston from Pratt & Whitney radial engine. The piston is polished to a glossy/brushed finish. (We've added beautiful brushed finish in addition to glossy finish as it easily catches finger prints and is tough to maintain. Take a look at the picture depicting Brushed Finish. Let us know your preference in notes during checkout.) The lamp swivels on the piston base and can be adjusted to desired height and reach. The inline switch is on the cord. Will make any desk look good and certainly invite conversations.
