This spunky wall lamp is named after the Mary Lou character in 'On The Road.' She is described as a “beautiful sharp little chick” and a “golden beauty.” This is a simple design that I’ve worked hard on to get juuuust right. I have always loved eyeball shades, but I hated how hot they get. To combat this I knew to use an LED bulb, and I’ve searched long and hard to find the perfect one. I now include a bulb that gives off a nice warm light, keeps the fixture from getting hot, and is bright enough to read by without waking a partner :)

As with life, be gentle. Don't use any harsh chemicals. If left untouched, brass will darken and develop a patina with age. If you feel the need to brighten your brass to it's original hue, you can use a gentle metal polish. I recommend a product called Brasso, which can be found at your local hardware store.

YES! Absolutely. Common customizations include changing the cord color, the switch mechanism, or dimensions. Please shoot me a message with any customization requests prior to placing your order.
Well, okay! My fixtures are made from solid brass that is not lacquered. The brass is polished by hand, and then covered in a thin layer of artisanal microcrystalline wax (Theres a $10 word for ya). This leaves the fixture with a deep, matte luster. The brass will darken and patina with age. I absolutely love the look of naturally aged brass, but if you prefer the bright gold you can clean it up with Brasso or Barkeepers Friend every six months or so.
