This has proved to be an excellent purchase. The lamp has been positioned behind a settee and the swing arm capability is proving to be invaluable. Due to its position, the switch, which is a push button 'floor type', could have been difficult to use, but this has been overcome easily by placing it in a magazine rack alongside the settee. An added bonus is that the lamp is a bayonet fitting rather than a screw type, which seems to be the norm with such lamps. Thoroughly recommended.
