I found this pole lamp at one of my long time favorite thrifts! It had been a good trip into the store as i had already found the original Broadway cast record album of "Bye Bye Birdie" (Which is one of my favorite shows!) I spotted this floor lamp with its seductive price tag of $14.00... I tried to talk myself out of buying it as I already have enough lamps to light the greater North Texas area. But after a quick photo text to Missouri Michael and my very very low will power I snatched it up and checked out!
(Look at that shade!)Once I got this beauty outside, I knew I had something, it almost seemed to perk up once I took it out to the car.
(Isn't this amazing! The picture doesn't do it justice!)Once I got the lamp home, I gave it a good over all scrub down. I just couldn't figure out WHY there would be a brass insert to block out the lamps light, and hide the etchings in the glass... and then I put it together and plugged it in!
The brass diffuses the light to the base of the shade. This illuminates the brass fitting and gives the most amazing sparkling effect to the etched glass shade!
I cannot believe I nearly talked myself out of this beauty!Have any of you ever seen a lamp like this? I couldn't find any markings, Dana do you have any ideas?!
What a sweet deal at $14.00!
