In 1800, Jefferson wrote to his friend Charles Brockden Brown, “Some of the most agreeable moments of my life have been spent in reading works of imagination…” Jefferson used an adjustable candle lamp for reading, one of his favorite pastimes at Monticello.
Updating the concept with classic style, this lamp’s domed shade and curved arm both adjust to direct light just where you need it. Beautifully made of antique silver-finished metal, it takes a 40-watt bulb. 17", 6 ˝" sq. base.
