SOLD- earlyish 20th century industrial shop lights-$100 for pair
these industrial, metal, cone shaped light fixtures were pulled from the shop belonging to a gearhead out in rural Renton. this guy was the real deal- he had vintage auto and motorcycle parts stacked in piles and stored in every drawer and shelf. motor oil covered everything that wasn't already covered in a different type of oil, so it's a good thing these were safely suspended on a wire about 7 feet up in the air. now they're ready to be put to good use in your shop, kitchen, bathroom, bar or restaurant. the reflector's cone shape gives off a nice, wide spectrum of light, and the green paint gives a nod to its authentic vintage, industrial past. currently they are on a pull chain, but could easily be converted to hardwire.
