Since the Uncle already has a pull-down kitchen light, and a sputnik light in the dining room ceiling, this Mint In Box Pull Down Lamp has collected dust in the atomic attic long enough.
I scored this Imperialite for a song at my favorite flea market a couple years ago. It was made in Latrobe, PA, (yes, home of Rolling Rock beer) near where my parents' family's are from, and was sold by a store in Lock Haven, PA, not far from where I grew up. The lamp dates from about 1961, so it's aged even better than me, but then I haven't been stashed safely in a box all that time either.
The lamp has a matte/flat black finish with nice gold tones and this great frosted glass reflector with a concentric circle design. The wiring parts are sealed up in the original shipping envelope along with installation directions.
