For many years I have yearned after a “library lamp”. I don’t know what they’re really called, but you see them in swanky libraries in the movies. Very classy, pukka academic. So imagine my delight when a courier delivered a largeish box this morning and behold, this is what was within. A late birthday present organised in secret by my beloved.
It has a solid brass stand, hand blown green glass shade, and the pièce de résistance, the little hangy chain on/off switch. Deep joy!
