I Picked Up This Gem Of A Swag Globe Lamp About A Month On Our Way Home From New Orleans. Status: Still Looking For It's Place.
Ain't it grand? I've got to find just the right place for this. It's too cool to squirrel away in the garage or something sad like that. Maybe I'll put a colored bulb in it and mount it up behind the TV.
I just had to have it. I love the way it mounts to a wall and has the tubular "swag" that allows it to
be adjusted up or down for height. It's missing a wall mount that the bar mount slips into but I'm
thinking I can just drill a couple of holes in the bar mount and attach it to the wall that way.
The maps are in pretty good shape. When I first spotted this at the Brick Street Antique Mall I
thought it was a lighted globe like most of my others. Well, it is lighted...just not like the other
illuminated globes I have. It's just a lamp in the shape of a globe. When I realized this I was
pretty disappointed, but the more I thought about it the more I realized I'd probably never find
another like it.
So it joins the collection. Like I don't have enough collections already. I did manage to part with
two of my illuminated globes though. One went to the Girlfriends Mom for Xmas.
