New lamps from old



A 19th Century oval silver plated tea urn with lion mask handles and an ivory tap would make a great lamp.

didn't you raise a sh*t storm last year talking about this very topic?

they started it...I still maintain that I am right.

Of course you are! Did you photoshop the lamp? Good job.

The House of Beauty and Culture said...

Ha! No, I did it the old fashioned way.

as an antiques shop owner I tell you we really struggle with the lamp problem, everyone wants them but when we do have some they take forever to sell. Very bizarre, so i'm always torn on whether or not to convert things into lamps.

O GS - I know. I think it may be psychological. People think they too can find the perfect thing, have it mounted in the perfect way, with the perfect shade - because as we both know it is so easily and cheaply done.

Those people usually end up the lamps they deserve.
