Farm, farm, farm, blah,blah,blah...
We needed a break today so off to Campaign (60 miles south) to pick up a few things at the...uh...farm stores...after doing all our morning chores of course, and then into Copasetic Consignments to pick up a pair of lamps I bought two weeks ago while on a shopping trip with mes suers. (That was for you Cro, sorry it's all I got)
This is where I need the help. I love antiques, even more so as I get older and my parents get deader. Not being disrespectful, just factual. But, I am no expert and therefore thought maybe some of my antique blogger friends, Tom? John? Algernon? might shed a little light (sorry, so very sorry) on this pair.
The lamps are brass, I believe, heavy, with marble, perhaps, between the base and the main body.
They stand 27 inches from finial tip (one finial is missing, I assume there must be finial replacement stores? Finials R Us ?). The marble bases are real purty as is the general scroll work.
The shades have been replaced with some kind of faux leather that (I think) looks great. No idea what the original shade was. They have been rewired. No markings on the base or anywhere else I can see. I paid $75 for the pair and love seeing them on the mid-century buffet I inherited from my folks.
So, who knows anything about lamps? Who cares to take a few minutes to tell me what you know? Who wishes I would go back to talking about diatomaceous earth and its treatment of bloody stools in calves.? These answers and more can be found on tomorrows The Midlife Farmwife. Stay tuned.
