This is a 1930's Westinghouse Chromilite industrial floodlight with an iron base and an adjustable tilting lamp head.

CONDITION: Floodlight is in good condition and in good working order. There are no cracks, breaks, or other structural damage on the lamp head or base. The glass face is also in great shape. The glass mirror /
reflector has been repaired at some point in the past, as shown in the photos, but is good and solid with no issues. Some normal cosmetic wear and patina is present as expected. This is a very cool old light that would look fantastic on display, or use it as a work light!
