Gold Bug Table Lamp
The Gold Bug Lamp is the sweetest! A charming gold leafed beetle climbs up a simple stalk on this original table light. Clearly, our children were enamored with Richard Scarry books. The stalk and bug are fashioned from papier mache and the shade from metal in our workshop in San Miguel de Allende. The tole shade has a gold interior, the foot is acrylic and it comes with a brass ball finial.
- Accepts one 100 watt incandescent bulb and can take a 3-way bulb
- 23h x 12dia
- Shade alone 9h x 12dia
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including: lead which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
The warning listed on our website is in accordance with a law implemented by the state of California called Proposition-65. Under this regulation, California law requires businesses to provide warnings for products containing chemicals that the state of California has identified as carcinogens or reproductive toxins. Recent amendments to this law require any retailers selling to California residents to list this warning on their website.
There are currently almost 1,000 substances on the Proposition-65 list, ranging from cigarette smoke and asbestos to aspirin and wood dust. One of the materials listed is lead, and because most light fixtures contain brass in the sockets or in the frames of the shades, we are required to put this warning label on our light fixtures. Brass is a metal alloy consisting of copper, zinc and small amounts of lead, which is what triggers the “lead” warning under California Proposition-65 since lead has been shown to cause cancer when it is ingested.
We hope that this explains things a little more clearly. If you have any additional questions, we would suggest visiting the website mentioned above for more information and the complete list of substances that require warnings under Proposition-65.
Exactly as pictured, have enjoyed it for the past year and love people's reactions when they see the bug. It's functional and brings a smile to my face when I see it. Hand crafted and high quality, everyone should have one in their home.
