TL005: “Pigtail”
- Height 24" Base 7
"

This Tap Lamp features what is called in the industry a 'pig tail,' a looped pipe which before it was found by Gareth operated as a protecting device between a pressure measuring guage and a main steam pipe. The loop was filled with water which absorbed the shock waves caused when quantities of steam were withdrawn from the system.

The spherical, pearl lampshade consists of a double layer of moulded glass from the Art Deco era. This particular shade was manufactured here in Christchurch, New Zealand. The finishing enamel is cobalt blue and the faucet is an oblique mounted, solid brass, manufactured by HMC faucet manufacturers in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1956.
