Move over Liberace


Lot No 303 A 19th century copper and brass samovar, a copper jug, copper funnels, watering can, etc.
Estimate : £50 - £80.
Tell me this would not make a great lamp with a black almost can shaped shade, with the knob handle becoming the finial. Evidently this is sort of thing is only befitting the "Spawn of Liberace".

No lie, I almost purchase a silver plated "samovar" this morning to make into a lamp. The shop had 2 and I couldn't decide. All without reading this post. Alas, I may be the "Spawn of Liberace"

Welcome LC - the more battered the better, no?

My, you did stir things up today didn't you? The anons are all in a tizzy. That must have been fun. :)

Mrs B - I should have included the ubiquitous skirted table. That might have made them actually foam at the mouth. Have a fit. And die!
