Walk towards the white light...
Classy with cloth wrapped cable and old fashioned key shaped switch. The ceramic lampshade is about the size of a mug. The bulb in there is a 40 watt refrigerator bulb -- normal socket. A regular sized bulb can fit in there also, but I think it looks a little better with a smaller bulb. The inside of the shade is crackle glazed (sorry the photo doesn't show it well -- I will take more photos at some point).
