Small hanging lamp. Extendable pendant with diabolo-like whitish glass shade. A spiral runs over the cap from top to bottom. The hood is open at the bottom. Extendable, just above the silver-colored cover on the glass is a small wing nut, if you loosen it, a slightly thinner tube slides out of the rod and the lamp comes down slightly. Nice system as a reading lamp in a corner of the room next to a chair. When you sit in the chair to read, lower the lamp slightly and the light comes towards you!
