Tamawa Bakelite Table Lamp
Glass globe different than shown.
Raymond from Caldwell, NJ– Verified Buyer
The glass globe has about a half inch neck that sticks out of the base. This detracts from look of the glass globe balancing on the ball base. (It gives it more of an hour glass look.) The bakelite base is heavy and solid and will not topple over. The inline switch seems ok, not great. The white power cord is rather thick, about 316 in diameter. (A bit overkill for a 25w lamp.) The recommended G9 halogen bulb gives it a natural (yellowish) glow. I prefer a white light glow, if you do too, then purchased a G9 LED replacement bulb which is hard to find due to it's size and is also rather expensive. The LED bulb must be small enough to fit in the neck of the glass globe. (You'll see what I mean if you purchase this lamp.) I still love the look of this modern lamp and would buy again.
