This lamp was inspired by the iconic shape of a Mk1 Tank. It has been made using parts from a 1960's lawnmower and a WWII 40mm shell casing.
The finished piece is a heavy object 65cm in length (back to tip of bulb) and 26cm in height.
It has been fitted with a brass bayonet bulb holder leading to a gold flex with in-line switch and 3amp fused plug. The flex is held in place using a rubber lined cable clamp, concealed inside the lamp.
The bulb shown (not included) is an Edison, tube style, LED bulb (B22 bayonet). The size and shape of this bulb works well with the lamp, but any bayonet bulb would be suitable.

I watched a programme in which a team of men got together to re-create the first ever Tank as used in WW1. When I went back out to the workshop I noticed that the side panels of the vintage lawnmower I had just dismantled had a very similar shape. I had been wondering whether to mount the shell casing I had as a lamp in its own right but I decided to combine the two.
