Alex’s Awesome Vintage Lamp Solves A Mystery

Pix_from_house 039Hi everyone, happy Monday!  Reader Alex recently sent me pictures of a great lamp she received from her parents.  Alex says:

I visited my parents this weekend, and they had found this little lamp for the kitchen.  I tried to get some good pics of it. It’s way cooler in person.  Enjoy.

I love it, Alex!  Tell your parents they did a great job picking it out.  I especially love the interesting shade.  For some reason it sparked some recognition, even though I couldn’t place it.  It drove me crazy. I knew I had seen it before, and it kept bugging me until I put up the post with our pictures from our U.P. trip.

That’s it!  That’s why it had been bugging me! I am pretty sure that is the same shade!  We had seen it for sale in an antique shop. I remember thinking that shade was awesome and wishing I knew what kind of lamp it went on.  So thanks Alex, for solving a mystery for me before I had even thought to ask anyone!!

    Great lamp Alex! I really love those old MCM lamps. And yes Ruth, I do think the shade you saw is a match for Alex’s. How cool!

    Neat! Actually they haven’t given it to me…yet. My sister and I go through their house and put imaginary tags on things we want. My parents are antique collectors and used to be antique dealers. Their house is packed with all sorts of treasures. I wish they would just let me loose!

    That lamp IS cool and how fun that you found another shade, Ruth! I love the “imaginary tags”. My Grandmother once had us go through her house with stickers and put our names on the bottoms of things that we wanted. It was a truly weird experience. Turns out that my Grandfather sold most of the stuff after she died but it made her happy thinking we’d get the labeled items after she had passed.
