The hand granade oil lamps are made from actual US Army surplus grenades and gilded in gold, silver, or left natural. Each gets its distincts shape from the job it was designed for – fragmentation (pineapple), smoke/flash bombs (lemon), or high impact explosive (ball). This ice breaker will shatter even the thickest weirdest ice.
“This lamp is made with the tail fins of a 100-lb bomb from the Korean War. Paint and corrosion are removed to expose gleaming steel, interrupted by rough machinists marks from the factory. The interior of the fins retains the original turquoise paint, for a subtle wink of color. Finished with a polished nickel socket, elegant cloth-wrapped cord, and a natural linen shade.” On sale here.
