Vintage M.G. Wheeler Flying Sauce Sight Light floor lamp in green
This rare vintage green floor model version of the sought after "Sight Light" was made from 1940 - 1959. I think the Jetsons stole the plan for their space ship and their house. ! The condition is average for the years of use. The design features a clever felted friction mechanism for the telescoping height adjustment that simply allows you to raise or lower or even swivel the lamp head to the desired position by hand. The lamp has been polished to make the brass more consistent. The lamp shied reflector needs to be restored with new paint. The cap shows slight bends (almost unnoticeable) and has the "texture similar to leather". The upper shade unclips to allow access for changing the bulb. The lamp uses a standard base light bulb, either 60 watts max or smaller. All the parts and fittings are present. After some of the research, it appears the lamp was designed for use for work surface desks or drafting tables. I just love this because shortly after this the Jetsons became my favorite tv show as a child. Always brings back great memories. Have a warm flashback from the past. Plus, you will NEVER see this type of construction with the slide - unless your grandson or granddaughter finds this a fun thing to create a 22nd century light. Will reimburse if shipping is less.
