'Tulip' Table Lamp

A dainty table lamp, so delicately balanced on an ornated cast bronze stand that seems to defy the laws of physics. It is made out of vintage parts taken from old lamps: the arm used to belong to a ceiling fixture and is now set upside-down!

Check all the details in the pictures below.

Measures: base 9cm diameter, shade 10cm diameter at its widest point, 12cm long. Total height of the lamp 34cm.

Wiring the lamp (not easy to insert a modern wire inside the narrow old pipe!)
Testing the lamp and, finally, connecting the switch.
