Lamp Light
November 15, 2012

Not too much to say. The house got a new couch and love seat last week, which led to needing new end tables, which then led to new lamps.  This is one of them. The end tables and lamps both came from the antique shop down the street from my house. This one is pretty cool; it is an Orient Express Paris/Istanbul Brass hurricane lamp. It has a stem on the back that you raise or lower the hood to adjust the light, detailed claw feet and an industrial feel to it. I honestly figured it was an Ocean State Job Lot special of its day, until I looked it up. It was made in the 60’s and 70’s, apparently they are still popular and when they are all polished up go for almost 3x what we paid for it.  Below are some additional shots of the detail.
