Title: Lamp and lamp base assembly

Abstract: A first lamp base assembly is provided which includes two separate base components. The first base component is attachable to a lamp via a lamp retainer and to the second base component. The second base component is attachable to the first base component and to a connector. The second base component may be a straight base component or an angled base component. Since either one of the second base components may be attached to the first base component, an adjustable lamp base assembly is provided which may be assembled as a straight or an angled lamp base. A second lamp base assembly is provided which includes a base which is attachable to a connector and one of various differently configured lamp attachment members, such attachment members being adapted to be attachable to a lamp via a lamp retainer. Since various lamp attachment members may be attached to the base, an adjustable lamp base assembly is provided which may be adapted for use with different lamps. The first and second lamp base assemblies may be combined to combine the adjustable features of each. A lamp including the foregoing lamp base assemblies is also provided.
