This Compact Reading Room Lamp is an adaptation of those originally designed for the Library by Carrère and Hastings, the architects of the Library's landmark building on 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue, for its magnificent reading room.
The compact version of the Reading Room lamp will fit smaller desks or tables perfectly. It's the same as the original version, with the base and shade of solid brass with a hand-rubbed dark-bronze finish. The dimensions: a height of 24 inches with the shade measuring 7 x 12¼ x 8 inches. The base is 6¾ inches in diameter, and like the larger version, it takes two bulbs of up to 60 watts; for brighter light compact fluorescent bulbs may be used.
