Craigslist: Retractable light you say? $120 Petaluma

18 Nov

Are you as dazzled razzled as I am looking at this thing? Can I come up with any words to describe this thing’s awesome:

“Fabulous pull-down or retractable light dating from the 1960’s by Moe Light. It features a large 22″ diameter copper tone shade and a large wooden finial on the end for pulling the fixture up & down. The mechanics for retracting the light are housed in an all brass body, and the ceiling cap is brass with the MOE sticker intact. It has a 3 bulb bakelite socket with a on/off switch in the finial. The original white cord is in fair condition with the lower cord frayed. From the ceiling canopy to bottom of finial it has a range of a 26″ drop to a 48″ drop. The entire fixture is good vintage condition with age marks in the finish, which has been accounted for in the price. The original mounting hardware is included for ease of installation. Perfect for the mid-century modern ranch or bungalow.”

I could not. But the seller sure could.

Here’s another light:

It kinda looks like it has been made with chubaka fur.
This light is going for 20.00 in Sacramento.
