This is an original and untouched 1800’s X-Ray tube stand. The 3 cast iron claw foot legs are signed “Campbell Brothers”. The stand and articulated arm are chunky hand turned fittings. The tightening threads are also wood and a typical detail found on the earliest electrical medical or scientific apparatus. The stand all by itself is sought after as an early and important scientific artifact. We have electrified the stand as a reading lamp by adding a large antique 15″ milk glass shade, brass socket and brass ring. The shade and ring simply hang from the original wood tube clamp. It is totally adjustable in all directions. The brass has a blackened patina. The wood still has a beautiful original finish and the cast iron legs have the original paint…. $2800
