Along With The Laurel Lamp I Picked Up Yesterday Before Work I Snatched A Matched Pair Of Lovely Little Marble Base Table Lamps. Same Seller. Status: Hoping For Matched Shades.
I'm such a sucker for matched pairs of stuff, like nightstands....and well, lamps. The problem with lamps is finding matched shades for them since most of the time, when you find a lamp or lamps, the shades are toast. This pair came with shades but they were miss-matched. So I'll be on the lookout.
One of the shades is probably original while the other was obviously a new replacement. If I could
find two like this I'd be happy but I'd be even more happy if I could find a matched pair of little barrel
shaped clip on shades for this set! Why can't anything be easy?
Oooo...Aaaa... Yep, genuine Eye-talian marble! Meh, I was more drawn by the walnut "wings" than
anything else. These were sitting on the floor next to the Laurel lamp I featured yesterday and since I
was already throwing some cash around I went ahead and sprung for these too. Finding cool lamps at
the thrifts is happening less often these days so looking a gift horse in the mouth seemed a bad idea.
Maybe I'll get lucky this weekend and find the shades they need at a thrift somewhere. Stranger
things have happened!
