I wanted a Bankers lamp or similar (but fitted with daylight or halogen bulbs) in keeping with the beautiful roll top desk I got for Christmas. This lamp fits the bill perfectly. Ottlite lamps are excellent for night / day time crafting and it is just the right look for my desk. Very adjustable and sturdy. I would highly recommend it.
good light - easy to use, however, as i took it out of the packaging the inner part of the UK plug which holds the screw in place was completely broken in pieces and had to buy another plug to use. however, it came with a continental plug attached also..which is a good thing for those who would use it abroad i guess. apart from the plug, i am very happy with it.
I am very disappointed in this lamp. I bought it to assist my hobby of calligraphy, however it will not stand up on its own the lamp and shade appears to be top heavy and just falls over. In my opinion it is totally useless. Unfortunately, too late to send it back whicvh I should have done. Derek Rowe
Check that you are not being sold old stock- our Dec 2013 version of this went out of production in 2008- and the bulb, which blew very quickly cannot be replaced- after hours of searching, and lots of emails.
