One distinct feature of this Emeralite lamp is that it will reach an approximate height of 33″ tall when it is in the full vertical position. It is approximately 24″ in the retracted position.

A most efficient and practical fixture when attached to a flat-top desk or other flat surface. The base is held securely in place by means of a special adjustable rear clamp. The arm and the shade can be adjusted to a variety of angles; and the arm has an extension adjustment to accommodate various widths of desks. The thickness of the mounting area should be at least 5/8″ thick. A solid shim can be used if extra thickness is necessary.
These 8734 T W type bases were made in the early years of Emeralite; but back then they came with the famous green and white cased glass shades. In the late 1930’s, Emeralite began to manufacture lamps with metal shades instead of the famous green and white cased glass shades.
There are also two holes on the base that allow the user to reinforce the mounting of the lamp; base footprint is approximately 4″ x 4″. Rewired with period-style brown cord and an interior socket, plug and inline switch were installed.
Wear to the finish is commensurate for the age of the lamp; scratches, loss of finish, some dings. Pictures are an important part of the lamp description so please view them all.
