When off it looks like a vintage street lamp post, but when you turn it on, the bulb glows with a string of tiny LED lights for a mesmerizing effect. The black aluminum post mimics the street lamps of yore, creating a retro look in your study or office. Place it on your desk or display it high up on a shelf. Completely wireless, it runs for months on three AAA batteries (not included). On/off switch on bottom. Stands 12" high.
