The height of the shade adjusted by means of a screw key which was lowered as the candles burned down to protect the player's eyes from the glare. In excellent and working condition the lamp has a lovely aged patina. Dimensions are 17"H by 9.5"W by 7.5D. The bouillotte lamp is still a very popular lighting choice in home décor.
