Thank you Rick and Steve for taking the time to research and post the links.
The closest matches to what I had seen are the Binnacle and Xenon Euro Lights. I expect that they would be just as good for reading by.
Here is a link to the one I saw: http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/607430193/Euro_Design_Chart_Light.html?s=p
The two advantages of the light I am searching for are that that they:
1. Have rounded instead of sharp edges--important around the bed and over the table. Also, they look nicer (Euro style).
2. The rocker switch is integral to the base rather than protruding--therfore, less likely to get snagged or damaged, and also more decorative.
The above link takes you to Alibaba, an international business network that helps suppliers find wholesale buyers and visa versa. Hoja, the supplier, will sell these lights (that are TiN plated for corrosion resistance) including the halogen bulbs for $10 each!, plus shipping from China. Thing is, you need to buy 50 at a time. I would take four. Now I only need about 16 other people to join me
. I have tried to contact the supplier through the Alibaba website, to ask if there is a retailer in the USA. (I found a store that sells them in the UK but the shipping would be prohibitive.) We will see if I get a response from Hoja.
I wish I could get them through Amazon or West Marine etc.
