This little light is great for a multitude of interior light predicaments. It can be used in closets, as footpath lighting or inside cabinets. It can also be used outside because it has an optional gasket under the base to weatherproof it. The chrome plated brass base is just 2-1/2" by 1-1/4" high. It protrudes just 7/8" from the base and is hooded to reduce glare. #194 bulb draws only 4 watts. Has two wires on pigtail. Does not have a switch but we sell nice small switches that could be used with it.
