These lamps are made from tin knight sculptures from Mexico. They are usually made of old tobacco tins or other kinds of tins. They are all hand made in Mexico so they vary in color and finish. Phil wires them securely with a night light bulb and weighted base ( to keep them from falling over). The helmets turn so you can face the light where you want. Remove the helmet to change the bulb with your favorite color!
Phil will send you one from his stock, or you can choose. Contact me and I'll send you some pics of what is available at the moment. Some have wood bases, some have marble bases ( marble samples I bought at an auction).
Size (approx.) 18x5x5
Shipping is approximate only. Phil will only charge what it actually costs to pack and ship. Contact me for a more accurate shipping cost.
Phil's lamps are assembled using verified components. All electrical parts, wires, connecting devices, switches, plugs, sockets etc. are new or tested to be reliable and safe.
During assembly, the following processes are followed: 1) Each plug, wiring assembly and socket is tested to ensure that the polarity of the socket/plug are as per the electrical standard. 2) All in-line switches are tested to ensure they control the “hot” side of the wiring assembly, so the ground or neutral wire is always connected when it is plugged in. (if applicable) 3) All products are checked to ensure that metal parts are not touching either the hot or neutral wire. 4) If soldering is necessary within the wiring assembly, all connections are shrink wrapped. 5) Each electrical cord is provided with a strain relief.
The wattage of the bulbs recommended to be used with the lamps is listed. Please be mindful of this and do not use any bulb with a wattage higher than recommended.
Please be aware that, while Phil take great pride in the quality and safety of his products, they are not UL or CSA approved. They are considered art installations.
