With reference ?rst to FIG. 1 the stand comprises a
suitably constructed portable self-standing base 6 having
a hollow tubular upright or standard 8 attached thereto
and rising vertically therefrom to a desired. height, a
The present invention relates, broadly construed, to a
height usually recognized as proper for ?oor lamps for
portable stand characterized by a self-standing base, a
standard attached to and rising perpendicularly from the 10 home use. With reference now to FIG. 4 it will be noted
that the upper end of the standard has an integral an
base, and a novel head structure mounted atop said
nular ?ange 10 and associated therewith are nylon

An equally general objective is to provide an especially 15 sandwiched between the washers 10 and 14, as clearly
