The Battle Worn Aviation Lamp: The “Checkered Past”. This lamp wasenhanced with smudges, scratches, peeled paint, dents, and a variety of other distress to mimic the time-worn propellers adorning the planes of days gone which were battle-tested in the stormy skies. The black checkerboard pattern on the wings creates a distinctive piece like no other. Kind of like the old P-51 & P-47 fuselage special editions. Wow.
This is a stunning yet simple piece hand-finished out of cast aluminum for the aviation enthusiast. YOU might be that enthusiast or it could be someone you know……this would make a nice gift that might just be, well, ummmmm, one of the nicest and unique gifts they’ve ever received.
Measuring approx. 20″ tall with our hand-made Steel Mesh Shade, the wing-span is 23″ wide and the cast aluminum base is 10″ in diameter.
With a nice custom dimmer switch wheel on the front shaft which allows you to dim the light if needed. The wheel is a nice touch we thought you’d appreciate. They also attached twelve Black Cap Nuts that add tremendous character to the piece and bring out the wing detail.
