Chromed plastic lamp raised on three small plastic wheels attached to three short splayed legs that radiate from a central focal attachment point to which a short horizontal handle is also attached. One leg rises at a slant from this central attachment point and then bends to form a horizontal stem to support the round disk-like element that contains the light bulb.
