"Ideal for lighting of desks, but not as handy as the Lumos charm."
Folio Bruti[src]

A desk lamp is a light fitting, generally used to provide lighting for working at a desk. Arthur Weasley owned several desk lamps, which he had charmed to act like living Creatures. These desk lamps turned hostile, however, and would attack anyone that came into their vicinity. The desk lamps were particularly vulnerable to the Knockback Jinx, Vermillious, and the Verdimillious Charm.[1]
