Customer Question
We have a 1950's...

We have a 1950's brass lamp and need to know the maximum watt bulbs it takes. There are two posts for the bulbs. The info. on the lamp says: 660w 250v. thanks, Connie

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Just found this old lamp in our garage...it was my in-laws...

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes ...we plan to insert the correct light bulbs in this lamp.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

All we know is that it says "Leviton" on it and the specs we gave you.
