This is the lamp created specifically for the U.S. Library of Congress. Providing scholars and researchers with clean, bright focused light without disturbing sensitive, tired eyes, the lamp uses a patented halide-LED module that generates 7,000 lumens—more that 6X the light of a 75-watt incandescent bulb. An electronic ballast system constantly controls current to the halide filament (encased within a quartz arc tube) to ensure optimal spectral consistency and light output. When a lesser amount of light is desired, twin rocker switches turn on/off one or two LED arrays, which can be used with or without the halide bulb. The lamp’s post (available in aged Cherry wood, Chestnut faux leather, or Black faux leather) sits atop a 6" x 6" antique zinc base while the light module is covered by a lined, off-white silk shade with piping. Plugs into AC with an 8' cord. 29" H x 15 1/2" Diam. (5 lbs.)
