July 29, 2011MCM Home Improvement: Pole Lights
By Sablemable aka Jan
By request from reader Kirk W, here are a few retro pole lights that are for sale on Ebay and Etsy.
From Etsy seller UncommonEye, this orange/brown fabric pole light goes for $210.00.
Seller acidstamp has this brown shaded pole light up for bid on Ebay. Starting bid is $37.50 and bidders have 2 days, 10 hours left to place a bid.
Another Ebay auction from seller 4evermemories is this white glass globe pole light. Bidding started at $49.99 and will end in 5 days, 5 hours.
From seller PhatDog on Etsy, this pole light with raised type mosaic tiles in orange, red and brown is going for $175.00.
Seller LostFoundcollective on Etsy has this black bullet light is priced at $110.00.
And, lastly, from Etsy seller noble001, here is a fiberglass/wooden pole light that’s priced for $219.00.
Overall, all the lamps featured today are in very good condition, however, the brass finishes have some fading. I understand there is something called gilt varnish and gilt cream that can be applied to wood, metal, etc. to either renew old finishes or create new finishes. I’ve never used these products before and if someone out there has, tell us your experience using them and if they do the trick.
My favorite pole light is the third one from 4evermemories.
Your take, readers?
