Jeez. It Took Me A Full Week To Finally Get Around To Showing This Pole Lamp That I Picked Up Last Saturday. Better Late Than Never, Right! Status: Who Don't Like A Three Way?
It's so nice to have the previously filled living spaces back, even though I can no longer navigate any part of the Garage (heaven forbid a breaker blows!) or the spare bedroom. The bonus is that I can more easily set up to take photos in the foyer again!
This was the only item that I saw in the estate sale ad for the first of two estate sales that I hit last
weekend. I was about the 6th or 7th through the door but it was still sitting there waiting on me. I
grabbed the price sticker off of it and trolled the rest of the sale before going back for it. I'm glad
the sellers had it plugged in and lit up at the sale so I knew already that it was in good working
condition. It didn't come with the colored bulbs you see here though, I pulled those out to test the
mid century modern pendant lamp I showed you a few days ago...and forgot to put them back. Oops.
But the red, white and blue bulbs...how patriotic?! I like putting colored bulbs in accent lamps here
in the house. I like having lots of mid century lighting but who needs THAT many lights on in the
house? Colored bulbs are low wattage and only put out a small amount of light. Like the accent
lamp, they are just decorative. Of course, this lamp might better be suited to being placed behind
your favorite reading chair and need proper white light bulbs. And it's a three way with settings for
All, One, Two or No lights on, so one can choose the amount of light necessary for the task. There is
some loss of finish, as is the norm with many vintage lamps, on the brass here and there but because
of it's reflective characteristics it's hard to notice until you get up close. This particular lamp is
available, but I'm gonna put it in storage for now, until I get some space in the booth for it. Yup, too
much stock! Not a bad thing, not at all.
