Modern Onion Light c1960. These onion lanterns date back to whaling ships and fishing vessels from the 1800's to early 1900's. Manufactured to be a modern day electrified version of the antique whaling ship oil lamp - these oil lamps were called "onion lamps" - called this for the bulbous, onion-shaped glass globes, which shielded a whale-oil flame from wind, rain, and sea spray. This would look great in any nautical theme room. Can be used inside or outside - in a covered porch area, in a sun room, bathroom, family room, or office. The light bulb is inserted through the porthole in the bottom of the lamp. Requires Standard Base Bulb - 100W max. (NOT INCLUDED). We highly recommend LED bulbs as they give off less heat and are energy efficient.
