More "Orbit" Lamps! I Don't Know If That's What They Are Actually Called But It Seems To Be Catching On. Yeah, You HAVE Seen These Before! Well, Not THESE These...But Another Pair. Status: Available!
These are quite cool, don't ya think! I've already dropped them off at Booth 5 - The Green Shag Market. Lots of stuff got shifted this weekend, so I had to stop by and fill the void. Along with this Fab. pair of lamps the booth got filled with the Burke tulip style dining set featured a few days ago.
Deja Vu? You might be thinking of this pair of nearly identical Brass lamps that I had a short while
back. This pair, sweet chrome baby! Also, white globes instead of smokey clear. Othewise, same
set up...One globe, two globes or all three.
I got these Saturday morning after attempting to score a pair of Knoll / Saarinen tulip side tables. I
arrived at that sale about 2 and a half hours early to find a couple of others already waiting so I
decided to skip it. I was just going to head on back home to a warm and cozy bed but I decided to
see if maybe there were a few other sales in the area worth checking out. Turns out there were 2 so
I headed out to the one starting first. I got there and checked the clock. It was going to be an hour
and a half wait. ::Sigh:: I wasn't even THAT interested in the sale!
Then I remembered a garage sale that was supposed to start at 8am. I checked out the ad again and
saw that it started in just a half hour and this pair of lamps were prominently featured. Yup, I was
outta here! I arrived just a few minutes after opening time and walked right up to these and dropped
cash in the nice lady's hand! Half an hour later I was back at the sale, lost just 5 spaces and only had
a half hour wait. Well worth the effort.
The set is nearly perfect except for some chrome that has been lost on the tallest upright on one of the
lamps. Since the chrome is just a shinier version of the metal underneath it's hardly noticeable...and
the upright could even be twisted so as that the best side faced forward if need be. Even all the bulbs
still worked when I got the set to the Shag! And this set looks so good sitting on top of the Super
Mod Burke dining set.
