Vintage photography lamp. Shade is aluminum. The light works. It shows wear and marks throughout with a couple areas of sticker residue as well. The shade is no longer perfectly round. There is a small ding in the metal on the edge. It measures approx. 17" in diameter. There is a label on the top that reads "Zulassige Neigbarkeit. Nitraphotlampen bis 180. Kino-u. Episkoplampen bis 45". This lamp has a really neat look and there are certainly lots of things you could do with it. Please pm me for additional pictures.
