A special edition Wacky Lamps ‘Pipeman’ lamp … available in BOTH pre-built AND kit form!
Now, if you wish, you can have the enjoyment and satisfaction of making your very own pipelamp with this quality and simple to make kit. All the components you require to make Pipeman: The Lover, are included in the kit, with the exception of the bulb. You are free to use any of the readily-available E27 screw-type bulbs–filament or LED—the choice is yours.
Or you might prefer to have ‘Pipeman—The Lover’ in his pre-built form. This choice then comes with an Edison 40W bulb.
Pipeman: The Lover is a beautiful lamp that would perfectly grace any room. On his knees, with one hand behind his back, Pipeman extends his other hand, in which he grasps a tube ready for water and a single-stemmed flower to be added. A super gift for a loved one or just a special present for yourself!

*Please note: The flower is NOT included with the kit or pre-built versions, and the bulb is only included with the pre-built lamp. Also, the galvanised iron components may have some small marks and irregularities, including some rusting to the threads, which are due to the nature of the product; do not affect the construction of the lamp; and are consistent with an ‘industrial’ look.
OPTIONAL EXTRA: If you purchse the kit and you would prefer to paint the exposed threads of the lamps components, as well as giving the whiole lamp a final polish, then you can also purchse our ‘Paint and Polish Kit. This costs £7 and can be added to your order for no additional postage. The kit consists of a small pot of metallic chrome paint, a crafting paintbrush and a small pot of Maas Metal polish (enough to give the lamp its first polish).
