Nice, I like the post tops. I wished they were more popular here in United States for street lighting.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

They are rather good, aren't they They can also be fitted with a 35W SOX lamp, we have just acquired one of those, although it's the version with included gear.

It's going to make a cracking floor lamp.
